The Attendance Centre Program is an alternative to custody program under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). It allows a young person to remain in the community, to participate in a structured and supervised program. The program encompasses a wide variety of opportunities for youth to learn and develop new skills, while maintaining a closely supervised setting to ensure the safety of the youth and the community.
Education Forward is also offered to youth participating in the Attendance Centre Program. Education Forward is an opportunity for youth who are not enrolled in a traditional school program to participate in an alternative learning environment, while providing intensive one-to-one support.
