Calgary Youth Justice Society has a 25-year history of helping vulnerable youth find their way through challenging life circumstances and sometimes unhealthy choices that can hold them back from reaching their full potential. We believe that every young person belongs and has the potential to meaningfully contribute to our community. Our strengths-based approach with a focus on positive youth development builds protective factors and reduces risk factors in youth served.

Programs center around a relentless pursuit of strengths in our youth, building positive relationships with caring adults and peers, as well as connecting them in a meaningful way to their community. CYJS programs reach youth primarily within the scope of primary and secondary prevention. Youth served are at a point where vulnerabilities have been identified and at a time where the impact of strengthening protective factors to reduce risk factors and the development of poor outcomes.

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children, to earn the approbation of honest critics; to appreciate beauty; to give of one’s self, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived–that is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
