Streetwise Programme: New Cases

The Streetwise Programme (SWP) is a 6-month voluntary, preventive and rehabilitative programme for youths who associate with gangs. The programme helps youths make a fresh start in life through a series of individual counselling, group work and family counselling session. Enhanced Streetwise Programme is a pre-court diversionary programme for youth offenders who play a minor role in gang-related offences. These youth offenders would receive a stern warning if they complete the programme successfully, in lieu of court prosecution.
