Juvenile Mediation

What is Juvenile Parole/Probation Mediation?

  • Referrals to mediation are typically made by the probation or parole officer, but can be made by anyone involved such as school personnel, counselors, and parents.
  • Mediation addresses the juvenile's accountability and provides opportunity for problem solving through face-to-face dialogue, with the assistance of neutral, third party mediators.
  • Mediation is an alternative process for youth, probation and parole officers, and others to use when conflict in the youth's life increases the risk of further law violation or incarceration.

Examples of Juvenile Mediation can include:

Juvenile - School

  • expectations of the school personnel, the youth and the parent(s);
  • communication guidelines; discussing unresolved issues, such as previous truancy, fighting, incomplete assignments.
