Centre County Community Conferencing seeks to be an alternative to the court system with conflict resolution through conversations. It's a tool that's been successful in other parts of the country and the world.

 A noisy party, a crumbling fence or a stolen candy bar could lead to a call to the local police. Centre County Community Conferencing would rather you call them.

Caryn Blanchard is the program coordinator for the project. She describes the process as an “intentional dialogue” where the people in conflict talk about their issue with the help of a facilitator.
