Restorative Justice Study Program Awards

Christian Leaders Institute began as a school for ministry.

Ministry classes laid an excellent foundation for developing courses of study that serve the community. The word ‘Ministry” actually mean service.

Christian Leaders Institute has launched this restorative justice program that offers free higher education opportunities including many certificates and diplomas. These awards are ever expanding as new classes are being added. The awards are being developed that specifically serve those seeking restorative justice.

Government officials have excellent options to encourage higher education for those on parole or probation.

Offenders will benefit with these study opportunities to receive excellent college-level classes that allow them to learn and grow to be contributing citizens. Students must take the free scholarship class.

If they pass that class, they are invited to take all the classes free of charge. For more information check out the Christian Leaders Institute Website.
