The RTC houses young offenders between 14 – 21 years old who have been sentenced by the Court to undergo reformative training. This training consists of 2 phases:
Trainees undergo counselling as well as academic and vocational training. Other programmes include religious counselling, Family Involvement Programme and Community Re-integration Programme.
A Personal Supervisor provides guidance and monitors the trainee’s welfare and behaviour closely.
Trainees who want to pursue academic education are transferred to the Tanah Merah Prison (Prison School) which offers both academic and vocational courses:
During this phase, trainees are expected to work, study or carry out community work while under the care and supervision of Prisons Reintegration Officers until their release from the reformative training sentence.
The Youth Court and the State Courts can call for a Pre-Sentence Report to assess if an offender is suitable for Probation.

YRP helps ex-offenders take responsibility for their own actions and earn back the trust from their family, friends, colleagues and the community. The project offers ex-offenders who sincerely want to change a second chance in life.
