The Youth Centre (YC), as a Child and Youth Care Centre (what used to be known as “Place of Safety”), caters for boys between the ages of 6 and 18 from dysfunctional domestic situations.
The youngsters are introduced to a communal schedule, which includes the responsible organisation of daily life including cleaning and cooking for the group, working and attending school. Weekly group meetings and intensive personal care and attention by the manager and Thabang’s social worker ensure close monitoring of personal development and group integration.
Family re-unification and re-construction is a priority of Thabang’s social work programme. In co-operation with the Department of Social Development children will be replaced into their community.
