Neighborhood Accountability Board Training offered to Northeast residents

Northeast News

The Center for Conflict Resolution is offering two Neighborhood Accountability Board Training sessions in the Northeast. Using the principles of Restorative Justice, this training will teach participants how to solve conflict using collaboration, responsibility, and respectful processes.
Neighborhood Accountability Boards (NAB) can be used for housing code violations, neighbor disputes, shoplifting, trespassing, vandalism, school conflicts, and family disagreements.

The Center for Conflict Resolution (CCR) is a non-profit organization that empowers people to solve conflict in their lives by providing tools needed to find peaceful solutions. CCR has demonstrated that many disputes can be resolved with a non-violent approach.

The method behind this conflict resolution is three-fold: prevent, educate, and restore. Prevention begins with youth and children. They are taught skills that prevent conflict from escalating to verbally or physically violent behavior, and learn how to collaborate. Education that delves deep into long-held ideals provides a forum for introspection. Restoration offers the opportunity to bring balance to the community. The belief is that people are capable of solving problems in their lives when they are properly supported.

The NAB brings together a victim, an offender and community members to participate in dialogue and to find ways to make as right as possible harm that has occurred.

Two NAB classes are being offered in the Northeast community. The first class will be held Tuesday, Feb. 12 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Northeast Library at 6000 Wilson Avenue. The second class will be held Saturday, Feb. 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Jerusalem Farm, located at 520 Garfield Avenue. Lunch will be provided. To RSVP, please email Dbayless@gmail.com or call 816-461-8255.
