Supporting youth

Youth Centre

Peninsula Youth Centre is 16 bed, secure custody and detention program for young males aged 12-18, who have been found guilty of an offence under the Youth Criminal Justice Act or have been charged of committing an offense that is serious in nature so that the young person cannot remain in the community under their own recognizance. Banyan’s strong infrastructure supports high-risk youth who have been placed by the court into PYC. Specialized programs and services offer youth new learning opportunities to increase their skills and abilities, improve and change negative behaviour, increase youth engagement with supports and decrease re-offending to ensure public safety.
