Schur Success Auction Services staff joins board of the Youth Transformation Center

November 13, 2007 – Colorado Springs, Colorado

Rich and Shannon Schur, of Schur Success Auction Services in Colorado Springs, were both named to the Board of Directors of the Colorado Springs based Youth Transformation Center, with Rich serving as the Vice-Chair. The Youth Transformation Center is a restorative justice organization designed to help youth, young adults, and the community at large. Here are some details about the organization:

Youth Transformation Center is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to empowering youth to generate new possibilities for their lives through personal accountability, empathy, and leadership skills that shape positive social behaviors.

Statistics and studies clearly show that banishing and ostracizing children through suspension, expulsion, and juvenile incarceration has done little to build strong characters in our young people that will lead to responsible and productive adulthood. The restorative justice movement, now reaching critical mass around the world, provides an effective alternative that promises long-term, positive results.

Youth Transformation Center is proud to offer cutting-edge restorative justice training for youth and their adult leaders, alongside programming services that open a pathway to a reduction in juvenile crime and violence to build stronger, safer communities.
