  • In partnership with the youth, individualized plans are developed with the objective being to address the incident, reduce recidivism, and provide supportive services as necessary. 
  • Youth may also access the "Youth Justice Committee", comprised of community volunteers, where the youth will be given an opportunity to address the "community" and come to a restorative conclusion to their offending behaviour. 
  • By participating in these programs, youth can gain empathy and understanding towards the person harmed by their actions. Both the youth and person harmed have an opportunity to be dealt with fairly and have a voice in the final resolution.
