FIGURE 8 - PERCENTAGE OF YJCS PERFORMING OTHER ROLES WITH YOUTH

Figure 8 is a horizontal bar graph that illustrates the percentage of all YJCs contacted who indicated that they perform certain roles in respect to the individual youth cases they handle. The x-axis indicates the percentage of YJCs performing other roles with youth, ranging from 0 to 100%. The y-axis lists the roles that are performed: Find treatment for youth, find other help for youth, assist youth with school issues, assist youth to find work, teach Aboriginal culture, mentor youth, ensure measures completed, find CSO placements for youth, family group conferencing and victim-offender mediation.

The results indicate that the roles performed most often are finding CSO placements (about 87%), finding other help for youth (about 72%) and ensuring measures are completed (about 71%). The roles performed least often are teaching Aboriginal culture (about 21%), assisting youth to find work (30%) and mentoring youth (about 33%).
