Mini-Conference on Reducing Juvenile Delinquency with Wraparound: Returning High Value for Investment

Author(s) : CIPC

 

This event is hosted at the ICPC’s headquarters on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m and will present the LaSalle-Wrap project by the Boys & Girls Club of LaSalle.

 

LaSalle-Wrap is a prevention project geared at reducing juvenile delinquency linked to gangs. It offers intensive personalized support for youth at home, at school, and in the community using the Canadian High Fidelity Wraparound model.

 

Wraparound is used with people identified as having complex persistent needs in Canada, the United States, and Norway. This model has demonstrated impressive cost-benefits linked with healthcare and justice systems, and use of restrictive youth placements. By focusing on resilience, empowerment, and positive relationships, Wraparound has significant results.

 

The quantitative and qualitative results that LaSalle-Wrap has after 3 years of implementation are also very promising. This conference will briefly present Wraparound, the results of LaSalle-Wrap, and will place special emphasis on lessons learned, successes and challenges of implementation in Montreal, a bilingual multicultural urban city.

 

We look forward to your participation in the event. For more information and to reserve your place before September 25, 2017 with Anne Onana at: invitation(at)cipc-icpc.org. Places are limited.

 

The project is funded by the National Crime Prevention Strategy from Public Safety Canada. It will be presented by the Boys & Girls Club of LaSalle in French only.
