Purpose: The Prince George Urban Aboriginal Justice Society has entered into a contribution agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the Prince George Aboriginal Justice Society Youth Diversion Program (PGUAJSYDP). The main objectives of the program are to restore harmony in the community by involving young offenders, victims, family members, Elders and the Aboriginal community in order to repair the harm done by the offender's behaviour and to provide an opportunity for the community to assume responsibility for what is happening to their youth. The program uses an Aboriginal Circle model in which the guardian, victim and various community representatives work together with the youth to recognize their actions and the consequences and steps that one may take to amend or correct the situation. Recommendations made by the Circle become the diversion agreement, and the youth is monitored until the terms of the agreement are completed.
