VALUES INFLUENCES & PEERS (VIP)
Posted on 03/09/2017

The Youth Criminal Justice Act (formerly known as the Young Offenders Act) is studied in great detail.

Roleplaying and mock criminal scenarios are used to see whether students would break the law or not by. The sessions last about 45 minutes a day. The students can take these skills into high school and through the rest of their lives. In addition to keeping children away from crime, the program aims to teach that drugs are not "cool," graduates eventually grow up to live happy and productive lives. They do so by learning to discriminate the drug pushers from the "normal" people.

The program was established in 1982 as a preventative measure and not as a scare tactic.
