About The Little Black Book

The Little Black Book is an easy to use resource guide for youth in the Metro Vancouver area. It provides teens, ages 13 – 18 years of age, with helpful information about a variety of services including violence prevention, bullying, health, education, counselling, recreation and more.

Since 2006, Community Justice Initiatives (CJI) has provided The Little Black Book in hard copy free of charge to youth, service providers, community groups, youth agencies, aboriginal youth care workers, and schools in Langley and Surrey. We have now expanded the areas we service to include Delta, White Rock and Maple Ridge. 

After many years of producing a printed book, we switched to an online version, which allows us to reach more youth and communities.  We are now able to easily expand further into the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver areas. It also enables us to offer this resource in a way that is financially manageable, and accessible to more youth, with a minimal impact on the environment.

We feel it is important for youth to be aware of services available to them in their communities. The Little Black Book delivers this information in a way that young people understand and is a pro-active tool in helping teens make healthy and responsible choices. It serves as a constant reminder that support is just a phone call away, empowering them with information to become more responsible with their personal and unresolved issues.

"Youth value their independence and asking adults for help is often a last resort. They are often faced with problems and dilemmas that are too much for them to handle themselves. With the Little Black Book at their disposal they are able to access information and help, immediately and with positive results."
