The Youth Justice Steering Committee

Description
Description (Service) This Steering Committee is required by the Ministry of the Attorney General (MAG) to oversee the development and implementation of the Restorative Justice Circles. The scope has been expanded to other justice and community partners to promote and address youth issues. Our committee has a wide range of community and justice partners including Crown, Probation, OPP, Wingham Police, Victim Services, School Boards, Choices for Change, Health Unit, VCAP, Legal Aid, Betamarsh and Salvation Army Community Alternatives for Youth. We discuss issues affecting youth and their parents/caregivers. As a result of discussions at our meetings, we have arranged for a number of different forums to educate people on issues relevant to the youth we work with. This has included Restorative Justice presentations, Drug Educational Forums, Internet Safety Forums and the next planned forums are focusing on Human Trafficking. We strive to provide education and awareness to parents/caregivers and community members on issues facing youth today.
