Partner Up: Partnering to Interrupt the School to Prison Pipeline
In this session you will learn about an ongoing partnership between a local UWF unit and a community non-profit that is resulting in real, measurable change for children in our schools.
You’ll learn about the effectiveness of our Restorative Practices initiative; you will see concrete evidence in data; but more importantly you’ll see how the lives of children are impacted.
If you long to put Faith into Action this session will inspire you to go home and look at the resources around you and Partner Up!
