In the Lead is a strength-based leadership development program for overlooked leaders. In the Lead reaches out to youth in our city who are struggling to see and use their natural leadership abilities in beneficial ways. Where others see deficits and risk, we see strengths and possibility. With added encouragement from volunteers within Calgary’s corporate community, students transform their views of themselves, their communities and their futures.
The Youth Justice Committee Program is a community-based alternative to court that gives young people a second chance on a bad decision. Youth Justice Committee volunteers help young people move through and past a minor offence by holding them accountable without holding them back. With support, young people from all walks of life turn their mistakes into opportunities to grow and give back to their communities.
Calgary Youth Justice Society works closely with Calgary Police Service to divert youth from formal justice system processes. This project is building awareness and strengthening our partnership with law enforcement to ensure that all eligible youth have an opportunity to make amends for their actions with support from their community.
