Youth Contact provides wrap-around individual and family support for youth, aged 12-17 involved with the Youth Justice System in Waterloo Region and Guelph/Wellington County.
Referrals to this six month program come from the youth's Probation Officer based on concerns that the individual is at higher risk of breaching their current probation order, is not following the terms of his/her community supervision order, or is considered at greater risk of re-offending.
The youth worker engages the youth and family/caregiver in their home and community providing support, encouragement and guidance. Based on individual need, focused support is provided in the areas of school, employment, life skills development, health and housing support.
