Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent

Clients must be between the ages of twelve (12) and seventeen (17) to participate in the Pre-Charge Diversion Program offered through Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent. This ‘alternative measures’ program is funded by the Ministry of Children & Youth Services and is delivered in conjunction with the Chatham Kent Police Service, as they diligently screen and refer the appropriate youth cases to our agency.

"Positive Strides" Intervention & Educational Programming
All program modules are available to those youth participating in our Pre-Charge Diversion Program (12–17). Intervention programs are also available to those youth (10–17) in the community who are not currently in conflict with the law, but who are at risk for delinquency or criminal behaviour; youth who are at risk to recidivate + become in conflict with the law again, are also eligible to participate in offered programs.
Programs can be tailored to any client's particular learning style, and are delivered in INDIVIDUAL, one-on-one format with our Program Coordinator.
NOTE: Programming sessions run for 45 minutes – 1 hour in length, typically on a weekly basis; however, they are scheduled around the client’s needs. A youth can attend programming for as many sessions as they feel are beneficial, but the average is approximately 5 sessions, in addition to an initial intake assessment with a parent/guardian. Programming services can be delivered in alternative settings if needed; for example, in the client’s place of residence (outside of Chatham-proper) at a Municipal Service Centre, or at the client’s school, in the case of transportation issues.
Referral Process Referrals for youth can be made via telephone or email contact to Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent. Please contact Cecily Coppola at 519-380-0931 or cecily@rjck.org)
