Mission Statement

The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission mission is to promote, plan and facilitate improvements to health, safety, welfare, education, economic conditions, environment, and development within our region. All services will be performed in the spirit of cooperation, and with a regional vision, to enhance quality of life.

Description

The CCRPC Court Diversion Services focuses on diverting juvenile offenders or high risk youth from involvement in juvenile courts. We do this by taking referrals of youth involved in delinquent activity and providing an alternative to prosecution through case management. Case Managers screen juvenile offenders referred to our program to identify issues that may have influenced the offense. Youth are then linked to services to best address presenting needs. These services incorporate a restorative justice model and include:

Mediation: the offender and victim meet along with a trained volunteer mediator to discuss the offense and come to an agreement on how justice can be restored.

Peer Court: the offender has the opportunity to give an explanation of the crime before a jury of peers and an adult judge who can ask questions about the offender and the crime to determine how justice can be restored.

Youth No Limit: working with a mentor high school age youth plan educational, family, and career goals.
