Earlier this summer, NewGround provided training for the Museum of Tolerance’s SHADES program. In partnership with the Los Angeles Superior Court Teen Program, SHADES (Stop Hate and Delinquency by Empowering Students) is a program that provides youth juror training for a specialized Teen Court, focusing on bullying incidents rooted in prejudice and bias.
NewGround’s training focused on intentionally deep listening and asking questions that both challenge and invite restorative justice.
Through SHADES, the student jurors and their adult partners promote understanding of the negative impact of bias on the community, and advance hate crime and incident prevention through new community service sentencing.
This is NewGround’s 6th consecutive year partnering with the Museum of Tolerance to provide training for their SHADES program.
