VAYA (Victim Assistance, Youth Accountability) In cooperation with Community Justice, VAYA works with juvenile offenders, their crime victims, and the community through a restorative process of responding to harm. The purpose of VAYA is two-fold: (1) to encourage youth offenders to become aware of and address the harms caused by their actions against themselves, their community, and their victims; and (2) support victims of youthful criminal behavior. VAYA, guided by restorative justice values, will work with the youth in addressing these harms through a six day curriculum, structured support, and, when appropriate, a dialogue between themselves and their victims.
