The Youth Restorative Action Project (YRAP) of Edmonton, Alberta, is a justice committee focusing on addressing problems from hate crimes, as well as crimes connected with child prostitution, mental illness, and substance abuse. YRAP was inspired by teenager Jasmina Sumanac. Moving to Canada from Serbia, she was struck by the need to combat hate, racism, and other issues not only in Serbia but also in Canada. Collaborating with her Youth Worker, Mark Cherrington, she and Mark initiated YRAP. As described in this resource paper, YRAP receives referrals from youth courts. Members of YARP meet in a restorative conference with all stakeholders in the problem to deal with the offense and its consequences. YRAP has gained significant recognition, and it is now beginning to expand to Toronto and other areas.
