U-Turn is a program for youth who are involved currently, or at risk of becoming involved with the law. Plans and goals are developed collaboratively with the participant, and achieved using family supports, as well as formal and informal community resources. Using a combination of individual counselling, positive community involvement and support, the youth will develop new skills and abilities to help them understand and cope with the factors which put individuals at risk for criminal behaviour and involvement.
