Inmates in Indiana stand in a common room to listen to a speaker.

Students forge a path for restorative justice

Five students from Penn State Beaver, Shenango and New Kensington are helping to implement Bridges to Life, a restorative justice program, in Beaver County. As the inaugural cohort of Beaver County-based facilitators, the students will not only go into the Beaver County Jail to work with inmates, but they will also be responsible for training future volunteers of the Bridges program and extending the reach of restorative justice.
