Save the Children
Transition from Detention
Transition from Detention is a voluntary mentoring program based on a through-care model where youth workers visit Ashley Youth Detention Centre to meet and build relationships with young people (12–18 years) prior to their release into the community. Once released, recreational activities are used to develop trust and to connect young people with nature, their community and their culture. Youth Workers offer support to enable young people to access education, training and employment.
