Youth Services

The Genest Detention Centre for Youth (GDCY) is a secure detention facility that supports male youth in conflict with the law. Youth who are in custody at GDCY are provided with a therapeutic experience that is based on building positive relationships. The services and experiences that are offered at GDCY are designed to address each youth’s individual needs and are focused on positive decision making and skill building. Anago’s team also encourages the youth to reconnect with their families and communities while in custody. Our ultimate goal is to teach the youth how to make healthy, responsible decisions in the future so that they can permanently disengage from the justice system.

Anago is committed to providing services in a manner that attends to the safety of the community and employees.
