Details of the roles:

Mentoring;Mentoring for the YJS is a voluntary 1:1 relationship between a young person and a supportive adult whom the young person can rely on. It is more than befriending, as it may also involve coaching, encouragement, explaining, listening and guiding the young person to support them to achieve positive goals.

Referral Order Panel Members;As a Referral Order Panel member you will have a key part to play in developing this approach to tackling crime.These panels are special because they involve working with young offenders, their parents and victims. Panel members will talk and listen to these key people and agree with the young offender a plan of action designed to put right the harm already done and prevent future offending.
