Youth Justice Program
Youth Justice Life Skills Course
Could you or someone you know benefit from a life skills course? The YJ Life Skills Course will provide youth, ages 12 – 18, the guidance and direction needed to navigate society safely and successfully. Specifically designed for racialized youth, the program seeks to help youth navigate adolescence and promote positive development through a variety of meaningful workshops, presentations, guest speakers, activities and events.
Benefits of the program:
Youth are required to register at the beginning of each session and attend all 8 Classes in order to fulfill program requirements and receive their certificate of completion.
LIFE SKILLS COURSES will include:
The program respects each participant’s gender, ethnic, cultural and linguistic differences and any youth with special requirements. We are able to provide assistance to ensure full participation in the program.

Youth Justice - Committees
The Youth Justice Committee will address racialized youth, aged 12-17 and provide extrajudicial measures that focus on restorative justice for non-violent crimes and misdemeanors. The committee will consist of trained individuals from the racialized community meeting with the youth and victims and their parents/guardians or support members to negotiate ways to amend their actions. Working in conjunction with criminal justice professionals, youth will develop accountable measures as an alternative to formal court proceedings.
Young people have special rights that need to be protected and appropriate steps should be taken to see the reasons why they may have committed a crime.
NCCEEP’s Youth Justice Program seeks to:
- Help guide and protect young people who have committed crimes and help them integrate into society and their communities.
- Ensure that young people receive meaningful consequences for their offences and considers the impact and interests of the victim/s.
- Reduce the use of custody for non-violent crimes for racialized youth and prevent future recidivism by addressing the challenges and needs of young people that commit crimes.
If you know of anyone who has been in contact with the law and could benefit from the Youth Justice Committees as an extrajudicial measure, please email NCCEEP’s Youth Justice Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Youth Justice Committee
