The intensive intervention pilot program to getting young offenders back on track has been extended for a further six months, following a positive evaluation report from the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC).
The not-for-profit organisation Helping Young People Achieve (HYPA), working with the Australian Red Cross, is delivering the program with referrals through the Adelaide Youth Court.
It found there are high levels of support for the program and clear evidence of need, with the program filling a gap in service provision for young offenders.
In 2015, not-for-profit organisation Helping Young People Achieve was selected to lead the trial of ReBoot - an intensive intervention program for young people who offend.
They work with participants to tailor intervention plans to suit their specific needs, with referrals to the program from the Youth Court or as an outcome from family conference.
