Justice 101 Workshops
Justice 101 workshops are designed to introduce common legal issues to hard to reach youth. Groups that have benefited from Justice 101 Workshops include:
- Newcomer youth
- Francophone youth
- First Nations, Metis and Inuit youth
- Youth from Toronto’s Neighbourhood Improvement Areas
- Youth in alternative schools.
Justice 101 workshops are facilitated by a range of justice sector volunteers (lawyers, judges, paralegals, etc.). They use scenarios and interactive activities to build young people’s comfort with legal issues. Topics include:
- Interacting with the Police
- Criminal Law
- Employment Law
- Landlord Tenant Law
- Immigration Law
- Human Rights Law
If you work with one of these groups of youth and would like to request an OJEN Program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
