The YCLP is a pre-sentence program for young adults aged 18 to 25 years, who have been referred by the Broadmeadows, Sunshine or Werribee Magistrates Courts for additional support and intervention. The program is delivered by The Youth Junction Inc. at the Visy Cares Hub in Sunshine. It is a pre-sentence program designed to help reduce risk of reoffending by addressing issues that precipitate the young person's offending behaviour. Due to the program's case management approach, the trained and experienced staff create a realistic and practical plan collaboratively with the young person.
The program not only provides individual intensive support to each young person, it ensures they are linked into various in-house co-located agencies, along with appropriate external services where required.
