Purpose: In this project, youth probation officers of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) will refer approximately 8 off-reserve First Nation gang-involved youth who are involved with the youth justice system, but who also have complex and co-occurring problems. In addition to the therapeutic wrap-around program designed for the youth to address their needs and change their life trajectories, youth will also have the opportunity to achieve an education through the Whytecliff Education Centre. The youth referred to the program will also be immersed in a First Nations' community which will serve to enhance the youths' self-esteem, help root them in their history, better connect them to their land and culture, help them learn from powerful role models and help establish longer-term connections that could continue well past their time in the program.
