Youth Justice Transition Program

These programs reinforce the need for youth to take responsibility for his/her action, and view this as one factor in rehabilitation of youth. The programs are highly involved with reintegrating youth into the community and can act as a conduit between youth and their return to their family unit. Finally, these youth justice services are supportive of the legislation that states 'that the purpose of youth sentences is to hold young people accountable through interventions that are just, provide meaningful consequences and promote rehabilitation and reintegration.'

Youth Justice Transition Program 

The Youth Justice Transition Program (YJTP) is a 3-month program for up to 6 youth, aged 12-18 years who have an order to reside condition on their court order. YJTP assists youth in complying with court conditions while developing life skills and encouraging positive decision making.

Youth entering the program are matched with a Care Family and a Youth Transition Worker, who will work the youth to develop goals during their stay; provide support and mediate any concerns with the youth, their family of origin and their Care Family. 

Short stay residential placements in Care Family homes and transitional support services are available for youth on conditional court orders, including Bail or Sentencing Orders, who need a safe place to live while planning for appropriate residential placement. 

Youth referred to the YJTP Program must have an order to reside condition on their Court order. Referrals come from Youth Probation Officers. All referrals are screened by the Provincial FTAP screening committee to determine eligibility.  To refer a youth please fill out the Provincial Full Time Attendance Program Referral Form and email it to kira.lavoie@gov.bc.ca or fax at 250-953-3710.
