Young People and Communities: Inside or Out?

Wednesday, 6th May 2015, 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Registration from 4:30 pm

Do communities have a positive relationship with young people? Are young offenders hoping to reintegrate into their community given enough support? Can young people and their communities work together to bring about change? The Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ) will invite young people, communities, practitioners and the general public to consider these questions. Community representatives and young people will share their experiences, followed by a panel discussion on the role and responsibility of the community in relation to young people and young offenders. Examples will also be given of successful partnerships between communities and young people.

Registration will take place from 4.30pm and the event will start at 5pm.

Refreshments will be provided.
