The Youth Justice Committee is a youth diversion program established under the Youth Criminal Justice Act as an alternative to the formal court system to handle low risk offences committed by young persons between their 12 and 18th birthdays in the Durham Region. Volunteers will meet with young people alleged to have committed a low risk offence and possibly the person(s) harmed, to discuss what happened and how the young person is going to make amends. Due to current social distancing requirements, meetings with youth will be conducted via zoom until such time that in-person meetings are permitted.
