The Nova Scotia Department of Justice added two partners to the Community Grants in 2013. Now, 22 organizations across the province offer projects that help youth make choices to avoid crime. Each partnership is unique, meeting the needs of youth in their home communities. The partnerships allow youth to participate in designing the projects, giving youth the voice they need and giving them leadership and relationship-building skills.
The Nova Scotia Department of Justice is providing funding to 39 organizations across the province. Their projects focus on strengthening relationships in communities to reduce and prevent crime. The projects being funded will connect youth to their communities through music, bring youth and seniors together to deal with violence, connect First Nations residents with their heritage, and support driver improvement, among other initiatives. Here is the list of the organizations that received funding
