Through the Adolescent Transformative Justice Project, or Adolescence Project, Peacebuilders Canada aims to improve access to justice for adolescents, young people between the ages of 18-25, who are involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in, the criminal justice system. The Adolescence Project is Peacebuilders’ framework to create and advocate for the implementation of a more developmentally appropriate approach to dealing with adolescent misconduct by aligning justice policy with medical evidence on adolescent development. Through this new approach, the Adolescence Project will also address the over-representation of black and indigenous people in the justice system, and efforts to reduce recidivism, and curb adolescence crime.
