Koori Youth Justice Program

 

Overview

The main objectives of the Koori Youth Justice (KYJ) Program are to divert at-risk young Aboriginal people from coming into further contact with the youth justice system and to support those who are under jurisdictional orders to complete their orders.

KYJ workers provide intensive case management support through assertive outreach, helping young people to develop resilience and by addressing factors that put them at risk of contact with the justice system. In addition to supporting young people to complete the conditions of their orders, the KYJ workers also link young people into specialist services including medical, drug and alcohol diversion, education and/or training, housing, counselling and more. Positive lifestyle recreational activities are also arranged according to individual needs.
