About JAOE

Purple Path is a for profit organization founded on Restorative Justice and Restorative Practices principles. We strive to support youth and their families, educators, and the communities at large with consulting education, training, and virtual healing spaces. We cultivate a journey that fosters wholeness and prosperity for the entire community. Purple Path provides empowering and motivational signature talks, Restorative Justice consulting and training, and wraparound services for youth and families impacted by deep-rooted harms. Purple Path is passionate about revolutionizing the community through storytelling and vocalizing its truth.

Our mission is to end trauma and exploitation facing our country’s most vulnerable youth and provide healing in the communities they reside. Purple Path stepped up in faith to establish Jones Academy of Excellence in response to the disheartening matters witnessed in our local educational institutions. Jones Academy of Excellence prides itself by providing a quality educational experience that promotes healing from a restorative lens infused with a robust academic curriculum.
