Redemption Reintegration Services (RRS), is a Scarborough-based organization in Toronto, Canada working to reintegrate youth who have been incarcerated. The founders of RRS have responded to the overrepresentation of Afro-Caribbean youth and youth of colour in the criminal justice system to reverse those statistics. RRS has proven to be one of the most successful organization in North America to reduce recidivism rates. For example, youth who go through other reintegration programs or no programs have a 47% chance of reoffending. RRS candidates, by contrast, have only a 3% rate or re-offense. Watch this documentary for some insight into their methodologies and their success. To donate to RRS please click here.
