Story Behind the Curve

The number of youth served by the Balanced & Restorative Justice (BARJ Programs has been declining. One reason for the decline has been an effort to reduce the number of juvenile cases filed in court and instead pursue pre-charge or community-based responses. There has also been a focus on restorative practices in schools which allows for a response that does not require justice system involvement to address the harm. Both are promising practices that keep youth out of the justice system.
