A voluntary program for youth before the courts needing support in connecting to community resources. After a comprehensive risk/needs assessment with the youth, YCAPP counsellors build a personalized plan to address the youth’s behaviours in partnership with the youth, their families, defense counsel, and community partners. Counsellors follow-up and support youth until their matters in court are complete.
“I went through the program because of an assault charge. I’m so grateful for the program and the help it offered and the fact I was able to escape a record. I was scared and the volunteers made me feel I can put this event behind me and move forward. I have never been in trouble again and I have moved forward with confidence.”
