At MARRS, the first step is a meeting with the victim and the juvenile offender to negotiate a restitution agreement. Trained mediators facilitate the successful completion of this phase and then mentor the youth to prevent future offenses.
Since most offenders are too young to make monetary restitution, the second step is the process is their completion of community service. MARRS works with victims and offenders to develop a plan that repays the debt in a way that is mutually beneficial.
In the character development phase, offenders participate in an eight week session designed to improve character and leadership traits among program participants. These sessions focus on life skills, leadership skills, and the development of positive character traits.
