Disclosure of Grant and Contribution Awards

Grant and Contribution Details: 2008-2009 - 4th Quarter
Recipient Name: ONTARIO JUSTICE EDUCATION NETWORK (OJEN)
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Date: 2009-03-30
Value: $26,598.00
Type: Contribution
Purpose: The organization will provide justice education training sessions for youth worker staff working front-line with youth interacting with the criminal justice system and will assist Law and Civics Teachers to promote understanding about the justice system through curriculum links. The project will assist OJEN in responding to the justice education needs of both the youth workers and the Student Success Teachers, and provide the additional benefit of making connections between these two groups of professionals who are often working with the same group of disadvantaged youth who have a negative relationship with the justice system. These negative perceptions of the justice system, particularly from racialized youth, impose obstacles to employment, education and civic participation.
