Volunteer – Youth Justice Committees
Our achievements are not possible without the ongoing support and dedication of our volunteers.
SLCS has a committed group of volunteers for our Youth Justice Committees. They encourage communities to begin to understand the causes of crime by using a restorative approach towards prevention.
Volunteers are trained community members who meet with the accused and persons harmed to make amends for the accused’s actions.
The application process includes the application form, police and reference checks as well as a formal interview.
Once accepted, there may be a wait until the next 40-hour training session is offered. Applicants are asked to make a minimum 1 year commitment to attend meetings on a biweekly basis depending on need and availability.
St. Leonard’s has dynamic partnerships with our local college and university co-op programs. Students interested in doing a placement with SLCS are encouraged to contact the Human Resources department at 519-850-3777 ext. 225.
