CARP’s primary focus is to establish a proven method of reintegration into the community for justice-involved youth and restorative of justice in Westmoreland County. Restorative justice is the bringing together of persons who have a stake in a criminal event to build a collective resolution to that event. The arts in all forms are being employed to reintegrate and reestablish the youths’ worth in themselves and their communities. The Mount Pleasant mural project focused on reintegrating juvenile probationers back into the community and is CARP’s first local restorative justice initiative.
