SEEKING JUSTICE FOR ALL
Prince George Urban Aboriginal Justice Society
A non-profit agency that provides a diversion program for Aboriginal youth in Prince George, keeping them out of the court system. Since 1997, 146 out of 247 of the youth who have been reffered to our program, have lived in Prince George less than two years.
The mission of the Prince George Urban Aboriginal Justice Society (PGUAJS) is to reduce the number of Aboriginal people in conflict with the law. The Society recognizes that both preventive and responsive approaches are required.
PGUAJS, in consultation with Aboriginal communities, will identify services gaps for Aboriginal people and sponsor initiatives that address the effects of intergenerational poverty, improve education, outreach services, rural transitional support, prevention initiatives and diversion services.
