Abstract:

This book illustrates the power of Circles in a unique environment. It tells the story of a youth development program, known as Roca, that serves high risk young people in one of the most dense, impoverished, ethnically diverse and troubled communities in the U.S. Roca uses Circles as an essential, democratic, decision-making process as well as a respectful and powerful way of communicating. At Roca, Circles are a way of being, grounded in a restorative justice and youth development philosophy and practice. They are aimed ultimately at building new communities both inside the Roca community and in Chelsea neighbourhoods. The book also suggests how Circles could transform communities broadly including schools, neighbourhoods, residential facilities, even the social services systems charged with assisting them. Roca's story has insights for schools, adult serving agencies, businesses, block clubs, and the faith community.
