About Program
Youth Restorative Justice has been providing service to the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows since 1994.  We provide  restorative justice processes, awareness and prevention programs, and mentorship to youth ages 12 – 24 who may be in conflict with the law.  All of our programs promote responsibility, reliability, and resiliency and help youth truly understand the affect their actions and behaviors have on victims, themselves and our the community.  Our programs are continually evolving to reflect the needs of our community and its youth.
