About The Program
The Juvenile Review Board is a community-based program that provides juvenile offenders 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. The program also helps youth
make lasting changes to their behavior to prevent future offenses.
