RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS

NYS strives to deliver programs and services in a client-centered environment that promotes success.

Efforts toward meeting this goal are supported by the following Philosophy (P) and foundations of Service (S):

  • (P) the environment and approach are to be non-discriminatory, taking into account ethno-cultural, racial, linguistic and ancestral diversity;

  • (P) the attainment of goals 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;

  • (S) the focus on the special needs of young persons must be clear;

  • (S) facilities and programs or services accessed by youth are to be reflective of realistic expectations for positive behaviour, while ensuring safety and security.


Services are currently delivered within the following Residential Programs:

Open Detention

Open detention is defined as a program in which restrictions, that are less stringent than secure temporary detention, are imposed on the liberty of a young person in terms of physical barriers, staff supervisions and access to community resources.

The program provides a structured setting designed to stabilize the behaviour of young persons in crisis. It provides for the behavioural assessment of young persons in terms of their physical, intellectual, social and emotional function. The program also ensures that the young person's rights are adhered to. Areas are designated to be used for activities such as food preparation and dining, laundry, study, recreation, informal living, group activities and/or visits. (Some areas may be multifunctional.)


Open Custody

Open custody is defined as a less restrictive form of custody in terms of physical barriers, staff supervision and access to community resources.

The program assists the young person in accepting responsibility and consequences for committing a criminal offence. It ensures the rights to which young persons are entitled are protected. Participation in specific treatment programs will be encouraged and promoted. Areas are designated to be used for activities such as food preparation and dining, laundry, study, recreation, informal living, group activities and/or visits. (Some areas may be multifunctional.)
