Juvenile Review Board
The Juvenile Review Board (JRB) is a community-based program that provides juvenile offenders – who admit their guilt – with an alternative to Juvenile Court. Through a mediated process, the juvenile offender understands how their behavior harmed the victim and community, acknowledges that their behavior harmed others, and takes responsibility to repair the harm through direct or indirect action.
