Trybe embodies the community that it sets out to build. The team work among the staff and their support throughout my entire internship, allowed me to understand the Restorative Practice (a strategy that seeks to repair relationships that have been damaged. It does this by bringing about a sense of remorse and restorative action on the part of the offender and forgiveness by the victim) process, before applying it with the clients that Trybe serves.

Through this internship, I have learnt to interact with the clients and to view mistakes as teachable moments in building up the residents. The Youth Workers consistently talk the clients through, to weigh out the consequences and to ensure that they understand the rationale behind it.
