Acorn2Oak Restorative Justice Program

We engage youth (ages 12-35 years), families, communities and systems in a restorative justice program that interrupts cycles of harm, juvenile incarceration, and other factors that create at-risk youth and unsafe communities. Restorative Justice Programs is an alternative to Criminal Justice Practice.  Our ultimate aim is to restore, equip and transform lives, propelling youth to achieve their full potential regardless of their circumstances and to repair harm in order to move forward in positive ways.

Counselling

Our Children & Youth Counsellors provide support and assistance to children and youth coping with difficult emotions, situations at home or school, relationship with parent/guardian or extended family members or living in crisis situations.
