The Stratford Juvenile Review Board ("JRB") is a community-based diversion process that is an alternative response to a crime or wrongdoings perpetrated by youth and serves as an opportunity to reduce youth involvement with the juvenile justice system.

Juvenile Court, Police or School may refer eligible youth to the JRB for a community-based or school-based arrest (non-felony delinquent offense) and/or a Family With Service Needs ("FWSN"- status offense) such as truancy, indecent or immoral conduct and defiance of school rules. 

The Stratford JRB collaborates with the youth and their families to design a reparative action plan that emphasizes accountability, responsibility and repairing the harm done to people and relationships. The JRB plan consists of a combination of formal and informal responses to address the referral matter, as well as, identifying the needs of youth and their families to recommend services and supports to increase skills for future success. Finally, the Stratford JRB assists the youth and family to strengthen competencies and knowledge of resources in education and for prevention to reinforce the building blocks of youth development.
