Time & Location

ARC, Sacramento, CA, USA
About the event
This project will include the perspective of two ARC members that have been affected by incarceration as consultants. Their input will be vital to the success of the program so it is relevant and directly addresses the emotional needs of the group. The consultants will be compensated $1500 each for consultation support throughout the 12 weeks of the workshop and for 6 weeks prior to the workshop to be active contributors in the design, planning, and implementation of the project for a maximum of 60 hours. Outside of these tasks, consultants will also support the recruitment, engagement, and retention of the group participants. These individuals can also be participants in the workshops and will receive the allotted compensation for that as well. Their opinions, input and commitment to the implementation of this program will be a crucial element to the successful outcomes of the program. Included in the hours prior to the start of the workshop will be spent as training hours by the directors to share techniques in restorative justice, drama therapy and trauma informed practices as a vital element of connecting and creating a healing community.
