After the Restorative Circle, the Mentor program provides the Responsible Person with a Mentor who intentionally supports the Responsible Party to set goals for Relationships, Health, Housing, Employment, and Education. The Responsible Person thereby becomes the “Mentee”.


The primary objective of the Mentor program is to strengthen Mentees’ resilience to the risk factors that are known to lead to victimization, violence, and criminal activities. Also, being matched with a responsible, caring adult will enable the Mentee to receive support and encouragement at a time when he/she needs to make restitution or amends to victims or the community. This can increase the likelihood that the Mentee will complete the resolution agreement successfully and will not re-offend. 


Mentees can be involved in the crime based Restorative Response or from the Restorative Response in the Schools of the Upper Fraser Valley. The Mentors serve as consistent and positive role models who plan one-to-one activities that will provide the Mentee they are assigned to work with, with opportunities to experience success and achievement.

  • Near the end of the final Restorative Circle, the Responsible Party will be introduced to the Mentor program by the Mentor and receive a Mentorship Package to take home.

  • The Mentor will follow-up within the week to further explain the Mentoring process and begin to the support.

  • For a minimum of 3 months:

    • Intentional weekly connection through texting or phone calls to create consistency. 

    • Intentional monthly (minimum) IN PERSON connection to establish a trusting relationship. 

  • After 3 months the mentorship is evaluated by the Mentor and Mentee:

    • to ensure all involved are being supported in a safe and encouraging manner​

    • provide the option to continue or end the mentorship. 

  • After 12 months, the Mentorship ends with the Responsible Party living offence free and a positive part of the community.

My relationship with my Mentee gives me hope that those involved in crime can be a positive part of the community.
