Since 1995, NYGR has supported a range of development, prevention and rehabilitation programmes to reach out and help youth-at-risk aged 12 to 21 years. Many programmes are joint collaborations between government agencies and community organisations.
Taking a holistic approach in tackling juvenile delinquency and youth crime in Singapore, NYGR aims to act on issues faced by youth-at-risk and support the provision of resources and services to address their needs.
The initiatives supported by NYGR can be grouped into 5 key areas:
Providing programmes for early intervention when delinquent behaviour first occurs amongst youth.
Organising campaigns, programmes, talks and other measures to reduce the potential of delinquent behaviour.
Community and residential rehabilitation for youth offenders to re-integrate into society.
Helping parents provide guidance and discipline as well as instilling values in youths.
Assisting public organisations and community agencies in their efforts.
