YiPSA works to support young people in conflict with the law through three intervention areas: Rehabilitation, Reintegration and Advocacy.

In rehabilitation, we use art therapy to facilitate behaviour modification and psychosocial development of incarcerated youth offenders. We offer this in five correctional facilities, child and youth-care centres and to communities in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Our reintegration programme supports released youth offenders to successfully reintegrate into mainstream society through entrepreneurial and personal development workshops.

Our advocacy work involves engagement with communities and policy-makers in South Africa on issues that affect the fair, humane and inclusive treatment of youth and children in conflict with the law.
