YRAP is a Youth Justice Committee that works with young people who have caused harm as a result of racism, intolerance or significant social issues. It is the only committee worldwide with this unique mandate to be run entirely by youth members (aged 15-24). When young people come to YRAP, personal panels are held for them by our youth volunteers. During these panels, the volunteers get to know the young person’s background, interests, goals, and how they found themselves involved with the courts. In conjunction with the young person, and victims of the offence where applicable, YRAP develops creative, effective consequences to try to repair any harm done to the victim and community while improving the conditions which may have led the youth to crime. The final goal is a positive, self-sufficient lifestyle for the young person.
All youth who participate in the program are assigned a youth mentor who hangs out with them and supports them through their court involvement and consequences. This is an essential part of YRAP because it builds long-term relationships founded on trust while also offering a positive role model who is close to their age.
