Our Mission is to enable youth and adults who are in conflict with the law to take responsibility for their actions through community work, education and skill development, victim awareness, and lifestyle choices.


We collaborate with the community, courts, police and governments to provide alternatives in the community for persons in conflict with the law, in a cost effective and responsive manner.
We provide an opportunity for the community to be involved in the criminal justice system and encourage offenders to demonstrate responsibility to their community and accountability to their victims.
We initiate intervention and prevention strategies for youth at risk to offend.
We provide the opportunity for members of the community to gain in the experience of volunteerism.
