The Sudbury Non-Residential Attendance Centre, located in the downtown area, is designed so that young persons will participate in structured and closely supervised programming that addresses the identified risk/need factors of the young person. Programs may also include contact with family and community resources to engage, plan and support the young person in the community.

Young persons may be referred:

  • As a condition of a probation order
  • By a probation officer who believes that the young person fits the attendance centre client profile and refers the young person for counselling

The Attendance Centre focuses on providing a place where young persons can feel safe and be supported to succeed in an atmosphere that is the least intrusive in nature.

The content and scope of services includes a range of programs such as group sessions for cognitive skills, anger management, restorative practices, life skills, substance abuse and employment or job search skills
