OJEN volunteer orientation for community programs
OJEN’s approach to justice education is not just about sharing information about the law; it is also about building young people’s legal capability. We create opportunities for young people in Ontario to learn about the law, build skills to manage legal problems, and meet people who work in the legal system. Since our formation in 2002, OJEN has brought the legal, educational and community sectors together to collapse some of the barriers to access to justice in Ontario. The community partners you will be working with play a key role in the lives of young people living in vulnerable environments. The volunteer orientation resources below will help you prepare for your time in the community. They include facilitation tips, OJEN’s volunteer code of conduct, and links to additional resources that are available through our website and some of our trusted partners.
