Youth Diversion Program
The diversion process is voluntary and the candidate is assessed by the case manager before being accepted into the program. If successful, the young person must attend a youth justice conference.
Outcomes can be in the form of community service, or commitment to restoring the harm done to others. A key tenet of restorative justice is including both victims and offenders in the process of restoration. This has shown to be the most effective and useful alternative to a court appearance.
