VETERANS EMPOWERING TEENS THROUGH SUPPORT®
(V.E.T.T.S.®) A Restorative Justice Mentoring Program
Restorative justice focuses on having conversations to repair harm done to people, relationships and the community rather than simply punishing the offender. It focuses on restoring relationships, improving decision making, and reducing crime. Restorative justice is a community based approach to addressing crime and other harmful behaviors, wherein all parties who are affected meet to discuss the incident, explore the needs of those impacted, and agree collectively on how to deal with the aftermath and implications for the future.
As a Veteran, the initial commitment of swearing an oath to protect and provide for our nation and families, is a long lasting purpose of passion that is realized through the V.E.T.T.S. program; along with youth having direct and immediate access to a caring adult that will protect and provide them with meeting all of their needs. Our program utilizes an integrated clinical approach to address juvenile delinquency and negative decision making through individual and group mentoring.
