Do you have a connection with Calgary Youth Justice Society?

Please tell us about your memory or experience with us. We welcome stories from everyone involved in our programs, including youths, coach/mentors, parents, victims, volunteers and community partners.

We’d love to hear what stands out for you from your involvement with Youth Justice Committees or In the Lead. How were you changed? What was different after your experience? What makes you smile when you think about it? What did you learn?

We invite you to submit your story to share with others. Your account will help people develop a deeper understanding of youth who are vulnerable to risk-taking in their communities. It will can also show just how community volunteers make a difference in the lives of others. The story you submit may inspire someone to make change or allow others learn by example.

While we read and appreciate all stories that are submitted, we are not able to publish all of them. However, if your story is published it will be edited for grammar, spelling and length. Because privacy concerns are of paramount importance, we will also change the names and locations used in the story.

In your submission email, please indicate if you will allow your story to be used in the public promotion of Calgary Youth Justice Society, in any form of media (e.g. web, print, TV, radio). If it’s just for staff, that’s okay too!

Important! Please do not use this service to reach out for help.
