Strong Not Wrong
CYJS is celebrating 25 years by honoring Difference-Makers in our community. Join us on November 2nd for appetizers, entertainment, and an evening you won't forget!
For 25 years, CYJS has supported young people to rise above their challenges and feel hopeful about their future. When we see what's strong, they see what's possible.
This celebration is about acknowledging and thanking our Difference-Makers! Everyone who has helped CYJS and our young people along the way by volunteering, donating, partnering, and supporting.
We also want to celebrate your Difference-Makers too! Who has helped you along the way? Do they know what they mean to you? Do you know someone who makes a difference for others? Attend our celebration and invite a Difference-Maker to join you!

About Calgary Youth Justice Society:
For vulnerable youth, the difference between trouble and triumph is a community that cares. We connect adult volunteers with young people who need support, in some cases because they have been in conflict with the law. Our approach is strength focused, seeing beyond what’s wrong to nurture what’s strong.
Calgary Youth Justice Society engages communities with young people to foster choices and opportunities that build upon their strengths, diverting them from crime. Calgary Youth Justice Society programs support young people who are vulnerable to risk-taking and criminal activities.
