Support Detroit's Children and Families

In Detroit, neighbors are coming together to prevent and heal conflict and violence. They’re becoming active stewards of their community and building better relationships. People want their children to be safe in the community and successful in school. Learning the skills of restorative practices, they're making this dream a reality.

Energize their vital work. Help them take an active role in Strengthening the Spirit of Community, the first IIRP World Conference in Detroit, October 2018.

At Strengthening the Spirit of Community, they will:

  • Learn from an international network of restorative practitioners and researchers.
  • Share their skills and accomplishments with colleagues from around the world.
  • Energize their programs by learning to work in more participatory and empowering ways.

Give to the IIRP Graduate School

Our students run toward social challenges, not away from them.

IIRP students are motivated by a sense of justice to create a more fair and participatory world. Our students pay their own way, driven by their passion to make a difference. We want to ensure that money is not an obstacle for students who are motivated to learn and serve their communities.

Your donation removes financial barriers to learning and supports restorative solutions in communities around the world. Your gift will be repaid many times over, helping to change the way human beings interact with one another and making a better future for generations to come.

Give to the IIRP Graduate School today.

Our alumni are building a safer saner world.

IIRP alumni are working in underfunded schools, economically disadvantaged communities, courts and businesses, from California to Australia. They are fulfilling the mission of their IIRP education, helping children and adults stand together, discover their power and resources and create positive change.

Our donors fuel our mission.
