Philosophy and Mission of CRYJ: The Center for Restorative Youth Justice’s programs provide an important alternative to the tradition justice system – working one-on-one with youth and victims of juvenile crime to humanize the impacts of crime, and to reweave relationships in ways that promote true accountability, inspire connection, and increase community safety. CRYJ believes in justice and crime prevention which focuses on the people and communities harmed by crime as opposed to focusing only on what laws were broken and what fines or punishments have been imposed. Our programs create opportunities for conversations between victims, youth and community volunteers encouraging youth to take accountability for their actions and to see themselves as an important and integral part of our community. One of CRYJ’s greatest successes has been a documented impact in reducing delinquency – with less than 10% of youth participants going on to commit another crime.
