father and childWhen youth under the age of twelve begin stealing from stores or people, vandalizing, beating up other kids, or committing other law violations, services designed for them are hard to come by.  At Lakes Center for Youth & Families (LC4YF), we developed our Twelve and Under Restorative Justice Program specifically to meet the needs of this population of youth.

The Twelve and Under Program focuses on giving youth and their families the help they need to get their lives back on track. Through the program, youth, along with their families, learn and understand the consequences of their actions, explore family dynamics, and begin to make amends for their actions.

The program includes an average of 4 sessions with an LC4YF Counselor. Homework for youth includes writing an apology letter and completing a cost analysis of the situation. Parents can refer directly to the program as can law enforcement officers, school districts and court system personnel.

The cost of the program varies and depends on the number of sessions. Fees will be discussed upon intake. Pre-payment is required for an initial intake appointment.
