The Thunder Bay Youth Justice Committee (YJC) program provides an alternative to formal court proceedings by accepting referrals from police for Pre-Charge offences and the Crown Attorney’s Office for Post-Charge offences for youth charged with minor offences. This program gives opportunity for the youth to accept accountability, for victims to be involved and for all participants to negotiate measures for young persons.
YJC is made up of community volunteers whose role is to provide the youth with options and directions for healing and reparation opportunities.
- Youth between the ages of 12 to 17
- First time offender with a minor charge
Referrals are accepted from the Thunder Bay Police, OPP and the local Crown Attorney’s office
