CTYS’s Youth Justice Programs support young people who are serving a youth order and/or have matters before the Youth Court. YJ programs connect with youth who are facing a range of complex challenges in their homes, neighbourhoods, schools and communities.
Whether youth are seeking bail, have had their court matter diverted, are serving a custodial sentence or are on probation. Our professionally staffed YJ programs offer guidance, counselling and comprehensive support to young people in ways that are engaging, respectful and empowering.
Young persons are referred to Relationship Skills for Violence Prevention (RSVP) and Enhanced Extra-Judicial Sanction (EEJS) as a result of a youth court order and are referred by Toronto probation officers at the Toronto Youth Courts.
Early Release Support Program (ERSP) is typically a condition on a young person’s bail release and requests for ERSP can be initiated by the young person and/or their family, legal counsel, youth court service providers as well as probation.
Toronto probation officers can refer to RSVP, Substance Use, Youth Justice Outreach Program (YJOP) and Transitions.
Probation officers and Youth Mental Health Court Workers can refer to the Youth Justice Mental Health Access program run in collaboration with Turning Point Youth Services.
Youth must consent and be willing to participate in all programs
