Provide alternative pathways for at-risk youth, restoring a positive connection with the community, thereby creating a safer, healthier Chatham-Kent.
Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent is a thriving community-oriented, incorporated non-profit and charitable organization (Registered Charity # 889010203RR0001). The alternative pathways we provide to at-risk youth in the community are achieved through our Extrajudicial Measures Program (Pre-Charge Diversion, Police-referred), Extrajudicial Sanctions Program (Post-Charge Diversion, Crown Attorney-referred) and Restorative Justice Community Conferencing. These programs are funded by the Ministry of Children, Community & Social Services; the EJM and EJS Programs are only available to youth (12-17) who have come into contact with the law, and have a minor criminal offence charge pending or within the court system, under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA).
These alternative pathways are also provided through our Positive Strides Intervention & Educational Programs, as we are able to provide FREE individualized and one-on-one sessions to at-risk children and youth throughout Chatham-Kent who may be struggling. The wide range of (SEVEN) program modules that we offer under this umbrella are available to any child or youth (7-17) in the community who are not currently in conflict with the law, but who are at risk for delinquent, negative behaviours, and may be struggling in school, at home, and/or within their social environments. These programs are also delivered to the youth who are enrolled in the EJM and EJS Programs.
