Logo

Class Format:

  • Three (3) classes; each class 90 minutes
  • for youth on Probation or Diversion
  • Referral is made by Probation Counselor

Class Description:

The ICE class focuses on the importance of changing criminal behavior and thinking in order to increase empathy for an offender's victim(s).

Keys to Reshaping Thoughts and Behaviors:

  • Humanizing the criminal event
  • Making the victim a real human being
  • Increasing the understanding of the human impacts of the criminal act

In ICE, discussions and exercises requiring active participation provide opportunities for this increased understanding and empathy.

For many youth the ICE class will help prepare them for fulfilling their Restorative Community Service obligation. The exercises and discussion in ICE class seek to help youth frame their community service as both a personal obligation and an opportunity to make concrete amends for their offense. They are encouraged to understand this service experience can provide a positive connection with their community.
