Community Youth Justice, Community Service – Youth at Risk


This program assists young offenders to be accountable for completion of Community Work Service as well as to the conditions of their court orders.

Our Clinicians participate in case planning, case conferencing and liaison with other agencies in conjunction with the supervising Youth Probation Officer.

LDCSS’s clinicians assist in implementing the Youth Probation Officer’s case plans for the youths who are under court orders or alternative measures agreements.

They also assist the Youth Probation Officer by appraising current community issues that may affect the provision of these services in the Burns Lake area.

The program works to arrange for Community Work Service to be performed in the community for individuals or groups that are in need of extra services.  Such

services would normally be provided by volunteers.  Such work or service will assist, benefit, improve, or enhance the quality of life for community members.

LDCSS’s Clinicians assist in monitoring specific conditions of probation orders, bail order and alternative measures agreements by providing on-site information / perspective from the community to the Youth Probation Officer.

 

The purpose of this program:

  1. To protect society by providing appropriate support and supervision.
