Centinela Youth Services was founded to provide youth counseling; physical and mental health, academic, and developmental intervention; and juvenile crime prevention services. Our vision is to use the principles of Restorative Justice and Trauma-Informed Care to empower youth, families, and crime victims to become accountable, to heal and to realize their full potentials.
Our volunteers are a vital component to our program as they serve as representatives of the very community that our youth have harmed and at times have harmed them back. Our participants are given permission to be vulnerable with each other and the transformation of healing begins. To volunteer, click here.
