The Program involves teachers, social workers, youth workers, as well as a team of ethnically diverse peer mentors who work with these youth to assist them in developing resilience, coping strategies and social and emotional skills to rehabilitate and reintegrate them back into the community. These youth will also learn leadership skills to become peer mentors to other justice-involved youth.
