About the program

Program objectives
This program trains individuals to become technicians capable of working in the prevention of delinquency and in the social reintegration of delinquent individuals, either before they commit a crime, following a court decision or following a diversion.

These technicians have the skills and knowledge required to intervene daily and directly with male and female predelinquent and delinquent youth and adults or victims of crime. Their role involves three distinct components: guidance, observation and building a relationship of support.

Technicians intervene with adults or youth at risk of delinquent behaviour or at risk of reoffending. They work mainly in closed institutional settings; they must therefore be prepared to work as part of a team within a structured framework. This workplace reality is characterized by highly structured tasks, shift work and irregular work weeks.

With current criminal policies favouring community involvement, technicians must also apply intervention programs in open environments in addition to the more traditional closed institutional settings.

Graduates may find work in any of the following intervention environments or settings: schools, families, community service centres, recreational centres, youth consultation offices, youth centres, sheltered workshops, day centres, group homes, rehabilitation facilities, federal and provincial detention centres, residential or correctional facilities, prevention centres, safe houses, shelters for young offenders, drop-in centres for deviants and support centres for victims of crime.
