Western Australia expands program to reduce youth crime
The Western Australian state government has announced their plan to expand the Target 120 program to more towns across the state.
Target 120 is an early intervention program that aims to prevent youth, aged 10-14 years of age deemed at risk of repeat offending, from having contact with the criminal justice system.
Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa Youth Program Coordinator, Tristan Cole, said on-country trips will provide youth with a range of skills, including learning survival, cultural and linguistic skills in the hopes to improve their sense of identity.
Conrad MacLean spoke to Tristan Cole about Target 120 and their mission.
