Trainings will include instruction in restorative practice, social justice and identifying and proactively combating institutional racism, as well as training in effective tutoring strategies, including best practices in tutoring students of color. Trainees will complete 20 hours of intensive training and be provided with AFRE Certificates of Completion of Restorative Education Tutoring, after which they will be assisted in finding placement for a tutoring job in the community.
