Youth Police Dialogues

Posted By Administration, June 12, 2018
Background

OJEN’s Youth-Police Dialogue (YPD) program offers youth a safe, inclusive space to
share their perspectives about their neighbourhood and issues that cause conflict
between youth and police. OJEN will create a safe space for youth and those who work in the justice system to engage in open and meaningful dialogue, and learn from each other; building youth’s legal capability to better navigate the justice system.

Program Overview

OJEN’s YPD is a facilitated program, that takes place over six sessions. Youth meet
with local police officers, lawyers and a YPD facilitator to build their legal capability and enhance their communication and advocacy skills. Youth and police learn together and gain new perspectives through role plays and other activities. The project provides the opportunity for roundtable discussion between youth, police officers and lawyers, where all sides work to come up with solutions to issues faced by the community, while addressing community safety as a shared goal.

Location

YPD programs are hosted by community organizations who offer youth-focused
programming. Four programs will run over the summer of 2018 with the following
neighborhoods in Ottawa:
(1) Michele Heights Community
(2) Rideau Rockcliffe- Vanier
(3) Carlington
(4) Hunt Club

Participants

There will be approximately 10 to 30 youth, between the ages of 12 and 18 years,
attending each program. Police participants will be recruited from Ottawa Police
Services.

We Need You!

The YPD program is designed to elevate youth participants’ voice and increase their
comfort interacting with members of the justice system. Lawyer volunteers will act as
coaches, guiding youth through interactive role-plays and scenario-based activities.
Overall, you will help elevate youth voice, build knowledge, develop skills, and
challenge perceptions.

The youth develop communication and advocacy skills, and learn to frame their ideas
and concerns in a way which allows for a respectful exchange of perspectives while
building legal capability. Conversely, Justice Sector Volunteer’s learn from youths lived experiences and increase their understanding of the communities they serve.

This is a great opportunity for you to assist OJEN in challenging existing perceptions. All stakeholders will benefit from the sharing of information and strengthen relationships between the justice sector and the community.

Get Involved!

To learn more about the YPD program contact OJEN Project Officer, Tina Yousif at
tyousif@ojen.ca or 416-761-9963 EXT: 255.
