Target Audience

The course is to be completed after the new volunteer’s application has been approved. ┬áIt can be completed at the volunteer’s convenience, however, it must be completed prior to attending the New Volunteer’s Training (NVT) Session Two.

This course is primarily intended for Youth Justice Committee volunteers in the City of Calgary. Other learners (e.g., volunteers/professionals in the Youth Justice community in Alberta and across Canada, justice students, the public,) are most welcome to work through the material, but will not be issued a certificate.


There are no specific prerequisites for this course, but it is recommended that you have a moderate level of comfort in using a computer and good access to the Internet (i.e., high speed).

Course Completion

You can work through the material at your own pace –there is no time limit. The course is set up so that CYJS staff will be notified automatically when you have completed the quiz successfully, there is no need to email. Once you have successfully completed the course (i.e., achieved a score of 80% or higher on the quiz), the Chair of your committee will be notified and you will be issued a certificate .
