Youth Justice Program
The mandate of the Youth Services programs is to provide services to children and youth and their families who have been identified as having struggles with behavioral, social, emotional, and/or mental health.
The Youth Justice Program works closely with youth to help them meet the conditions of their probation order and increase their ability to develop positive relationships with their family and community thereby lowering rates of recidivism. This program provides intensive supervision and individualized one-to-one support to youth involved, or at risk of becoming involved, in the Youth Justice System. Services may take the form of transportation, curfew checks, job seeking, school support, mentorship, parent teen mediation, youth agreements and supervision of community service hours. Apart from Probation Officer referrals, youth can also be referred by social workers and clinicians from the White Rock MCFD offices for various reasons, including; mentoring, positive role-modeling, and engagement in the community or school, as well as for support with Youth Agreements. The YJ Program works with youth aged 12 to 18 years of age, and provides several hours a week of support.
This Program receives funding from the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
