“I feel proud because our committee has been so successful. The seeds you sow make a difference in the crop you grow.”
Youth Justice Committee Volunteer

Youth Justice Committee volunteers help young people move through and past a minor offence by holding them accountable without holding them back.

As a Youth Justice Committee volunteer you will:

Impact a young person’s life by empowering them to have a voice; increase their accountability; develop self-awareness, all with the goal of avoiding a formal youth record and developing positive relationships with adults in the community.

Help families by considering their needs as well, providing additional resources to address family difficulties and ensuring cases are handled expediently and efficiently.

Support victims by providing an opportunity to express how the crime has affected them and offer restitution, if applicable, to help repair the harm that was caused.

Improve the community by having a positive impact on reducing youth crime.

Your Commitment

  • Be a Youth Justice Committee (YJC) Member for a minimum one year
  • Attend initial and ongoing training
  • Attend “panels”, a meeting where the young person and their family with the YJC members (approximately 1-3 files for 5-10 hours/month)
  • Attend Committee Member meetings including Annual General Meeting (approximately 3 to 10 meetings per year for 1-2 hours)
  • Be flexible, open minded and willing to learn

EVERYONE NEEDS SOMEONE TO GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE. Will it be you?
