A Review of the Integrated Youth Offender Programme Piloted in Boksburg Juvenile Correctional Centre with the "Inkanyezi Yentathakusa"

The subsequent research report written for the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation on March 2005 is an in-depth investigation into the Integrated Youth Offender Programme (IYOP) Piloted in Boksburg Juvenile Correctional Centre with the "Inkanyezi Yentathakusa". The IYOP was built on the theory of risk and resilience and incorporated an understanding of socio-economic dynamics that impinge on a young person in South Africa and influence their offending behaviour. The report explores facets such as the overview of staff training programmes, perceptions of change in participants and concludes with recommendations of strengthening the IYOP.
