School and Community/ Legal System
Balanced and Restorative Justice Program (BARJ)
Balanced and Restorative Justice (BARJ) provides individualized support services, guided by restorative justice principles, for youth ages 10 through 18 who are at risk of becoming involved with the justice system, or struggling with school attendance or on juvenile probation.
Like all of LRC’s programs, BARJ is voluntary. Youth are referred to BARJ by the court system, schools, and community providers such as health care, and family members. After being referred, LRC staff meet with the young person and assess their risks for involvement in the legal system, and develop a case plan to address those risks and set goals for success.
