CYJS has been making a difference in the lives of young people involved in criminal activity for more than 15 years.

The Calgary Youth Justice Society provides three programs to support young people who are vulnerable to risk-taking and criminal activities.  CYJS has been making a difference in the lives of young people involved in criminal activity for more than 15 years. Since the early beginnings of establishing Youth Justice Committees through to the innovative current programming, CYJS has always seen the potential for young people to be resilient if engaged in ways that affirm their value and worth as the starting point for positive change.
