The new Youth Criminal Justice Act is the cornerstone of a new system aimed at not just punishing youth crime, but
also working preventatively and restoratively to remedy the underlying causes. PLEIS-NB has developed a number of
publications, videos and teaching guides designed to educate young people, their parents and youth serving agencies
about their roles in the new Youth Criminal Justice System. A Youth Justice Project Coordinator and Pro Bono law
students are available to speak to students about the laws that govern them and the consequences of crime.
