Abbotsford Restorative Justice and Advocacy Association (ARJAA) coordinates a mentoring program specifically designed for children and youth who are going through a restorative process. For our volunteers, this can mean giving temporary support to youth who need to complete the particulars of an agreement that comes out of the restorative process (for example, volunteer hours in the community). But often times it means being paired with a youth for a one year term where the mentor and mentee meet regularly to build a relationship while doing activities of mutual interest.
