Do you know a young person who is passionate about justice?
Please invite them to apply to the Youth Justice Lab 2021!
We invite youth ages 15-19 who reside on the North Shore to apply and join this virtual seven-week cohort.
From July 22nd to September 2nd, approximately 15-20 youth will get together to learn about restorative justice, decolonization, youth justice issues and much more. Participants will hear from various speakers and develop projects to tackle issues they care about.
Throughout the Lab, they will build useful interpersonal, conflict resolution and project management skills. They will receive a welcome package containing reading and preparation materials, be connected to mentors who are active in the community, and work in teams to develop projects. These projects will be presented at the cohort's graduation gathering to the wider community. We anticipate that this opportunity will lead to life-long connections within our local youth, restorative and social justice communities.
Ultimately, the Youth Justice Lab is an opportunity to learn, grow and build relationships.
