Evidence shows that clients exiting JJ Centres are at high risk of reoffending, this program strives to ensure that clients leave with the opportunity of participating in education, training, employment and a variety of other programs.  The program operates in the Central West of NSW, with referrals being received from the NSW Department of Juvenile Justice. The program supports the client in the first 12 weeks after their release, ensuring that positive networks are in place to continue to support the young person upon exit of the program.
