Youth Justice Outcomes Framework

Youth justice programs are committed to improving outcomes for all youth who come into contact with the law. In 2014, the ministry set new system-wide goals that build on our continued efforts to reduce re-offending. This initiative will inspire success and aid in measuring our impact on the youth we serve.

Northern Youth Services (Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie)

The primary goal of Northern Youth Services (NYS) is to deliver services to young persons in conflict with the law who require detention, custody or who are involved in a community support team while residing in the community.

NYS strives to create an environment that is as least intrusive as possible and that encourages success with services that are non-discriminatory, in an environment that takes into account ethno-cultural, racial, linguistic and ancestral diversity.  It is the belief of the agency that the attainment of this goal is best achieved by creating programs that are rehabilitative, and relevant to the individual needs of young persons without compromise to society’s right of protection from criminal behaviour
