We are excited to think outside of the box and work with Elm Shakespeare  and other community partners throughout New Haven to use theatrical storytelling and even the words of Shakespeare to raise issues important to all of us and broaden our city-wide perspectives so that New Haven can be more unified.We are a non-profit, by youth/for-youth, peer-to-peer training organization established in 1990 to prevent youth violence. For over 27 years, awe have specialized in training, prevention, and empowerment. One of our core beliefs is that youth communicate and learn best from their peers of similar age, racial and social status groups. Therefore, SNDH is committed to a Train-the-Youth-Trainer™ concept. Our aim is to prepare youth for a School-to-College-to-Career positive lifestyle transition. SNDH is known for its innovative, creative style. Survivin' N Da  Hood (SNDH) uses the reality of built-in consequences to teach youth to think before they do something that cannot be changed or erased. SNDH provides behavior modification training in critical thinking skills and social skills for adults and youth. Our training offers answers to life's tough situations; shows how to improve deficient, negative behaviors; and provides more options for difficult decision-making.Founded in 1995, Elm Shakespeare Company has given the gift of Free Shakespeare to over half a million people in Edgerton Park. We strive to ignite a creative spark, bringing people together through Shakespeare to share their humanity and build community. We work to strengthen the already vibrant artistic and educational landscape of greater New Haven, through the highest quality professional performances coupled with rigorous and joyous education programs that enrich the diverse New Haven community. Our educational programs now serve 500 students a year and  educational partners include Housing Authority of New Haven, Mauro Sheridan Interdisciplinary Middle  School, Common Ground High School, Whitney Center and LEAP. We value inclusivity, artistic excellence and the power of these plays in our lives.

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.
