Mission and Vision
The mission of Western Justice Center (WJC) is to increase the opportunity for peaceful conflict resolution and displace the power of violence in our society. We design, implement, evaluate and promote innovative methods of conflict prevention and resolution for children, communities, and courts.
WJC envisions a society in which conflicts are transformed into opportunities for learning and growth.
What We Do
WJC promotes greater understanding about conflict resolution in schools and communities.
We do this in partnership with Encompass through programs to build safe and inclusive schools and by designing conflict resolution programs focused on improving police-community and non-profit and local government workplace relations.
WJC and Encompass have formed a collaboration that allows us to expand our services to schools. The mission of Encompass is to spark compassion, personal responsibility, and an appreciation of differences among California teenagers. In the future, WJC and Encompass will work together to educate about difference and resolving conflict in diverse communities.
