This multi-year project entitled "A Solution Oriented Youth/Community Partnership" strives to bring all stakeholders together with youth in order to communicate challenges and create a framework for community based youth justice intervention options. One urban and one rural community (Fredericton and St. Stephen) will challenge themselves to identify innovative ways to address:
1. bail support and supervision;
2. supporting links between the justice system and appropriate services for high risk youth; and
3. special needs and emerging youth justice issues
As a result of the community forums, Partners for Youth, in collaboration with other partners, will choose one project from each region to pilot. These projects will be volunteer driven and supported by project staff from Partners for Youth Inc.
