In this session we will be discussing community advocate panels. We will share the purpose, strategies and outcomes of both the youth and parent panels. We will discuss how the victims are involved and represented in the process and provide examples of letters to victims. We will also discuss our community service component and the success we have by providing meaningful learning. Author’s abstract
