About Program
Youth Restorative Justice (YRJ) is a client focused and victim centred program that provides support and services to those who have been harm, those who perpetrated harmed youth aged 12 – 24 years of age, and to the families of each.  We take needs, support, and healing beyond the restorative justice circles with referrals to our education, prevention, and mentorship programs as well as community and agency programs. As part of Community Services, YRJ allows for a holistic approach to client support utilizing seamless internal referrals to the other services within the Agency. Program Info Sheet.

Our philosophy is to engage, empower, support, restore.
 
We also offer:

  • The Mentorship program involves the community in a supportive role to youth. Adult mentors provide encouragement, support, and guidance to youth while assisting youth to complete their YRJ agreement. Mentors are volunteers who practice and encourage the values of acceptance, equality, integrity, inclusivity, empathy, and social justice.  
  • The Choices Program is a 7 week program that utilizes experiential learning together with curriculum.
  • The Effects of Shoplifting program is a one-to-one program which uses a comprehensive workbook that includes relevant research and statistics pertaining to theft from retailers.
