About Program
Restorative Justice is an approach to justice that helps meet the needs of people involved with criminal, non-criminal, and incidents of conflict in an inclusive and meaningful way. It provides an opportunity for those who have been harmed and those who have caused harm to explore needs and supports, accountability, and reparation of harm.  RJ also provides an opportunity for youth participants to participate in the education, prevention, and mentorship 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.
