Verde Leaders: The Power of Soccer & Restorative Practices

Restorative Practices is now commonplace in the educational world as a reactionary tool to address wrongdoing. Yet it can be so much more: when embraced as a holistic philosophy, RP nurtures community anywhere – from the classroom to the soccer field – by changing the way we show up with one another. In this session, experience the unique curriculum of Verde Leaders, an Austin-based out-of-school time soccer program serving over 600 middle schoolers annually. Join our signature team circle where soccer meets community and learn directly from coaches & students embodying Restorative principles.
