The Restorative Youth Justice Program is an early intervention program that approaches intervention through addressing the crimes committed and their root cause rather than on the rules that have been broken. Participants are assigned to a worker who provides supervision, programming, and behavior change interventions to court-involved youth referred to the program. In addition to programming aimed at developing prosocial relationships, participants are connected with community service opportunities and an associated Subsidized Wage Fund that allows them to work at an approved community service site and use this work to pay toward restitution.

How To Prepare For Your Intake Meeting

  • During the intake meeting, we will go over the referral to make sure all information is correct, discuss the rules of the program, and go over the sites available for community service options.

  • Have an idea of the activities you are interested in – it is helpful in choosing a community service site.

  • Please come with a schedule for anything that you have after school that would make you unavailable for community service. Examples: work schedule, after school activities, therapy dates, vacations, etc.
