|Record #: SHA1825||Last Modified: 09 Jan 2018||Last Full Update: 09 Jan 2018|
|Description (Service)||At the discretion of the Police or Crown Attorney, youth in conflict with the law are provided with an opportunity to divert their charges from the traditional court process. By accepting responsibility for their actions, youth are eligible to enter into Youth Justice Diversion programming.
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.
Rebound is the sole provider of Youth Justice Programming in Northumberland County via Crown referrals, Probation referrals, Police Referrals in support of youth in the Youth Justice system with or without presenting mental health concerns.
