Bosasa Youth Development Centres


In June 1995, the Bosasa Youth Development Centres (YDC) were established in partnership with the Gauteng Department of Social Development.  During this time, the government recognised the need for young offenders to be relocated from adult-occupied correctional facilities and cells to safer environments. This not only triggered a transformation within South Africa and the Child and Youth Care System, but also the beginning of the Bosasa Youth Development history.

At Bosasa, our desire to deliver excellent service and to give back to the local communities directed us in developing an effective strategy. It focused on the need for improved quality in the care services rendered to children in facilities and resulted in the successful implementation of youth care centres nationwide. All of these centres are responsible for providing care for youths between the ages of 14 and 17. In the case where a child is under the age of 14 years, the incident is referred to our Youth Centres. This child may then be granted a special arrangement to accommodate them.
