From Territory Families press release:

The program will have strong links to the business community to find employment opportunities for young people during the program (and ongoing).

The program will address at-risk behaviour, consequences and restitution, life skills and cultural connection, family capacity and responsibility, re-engagement with education, training and employment opportunities.

The program will target two age groups:

Target Group 1: 14-17 years

The program will engage up to 60 young Territorians (annually) that are at risk of entering the youth justice system and will include individual support and mentoring through training and employment.

Target Group 2: 8-13 years

The program will engage up to 25 children and young people (annually) across the Territory who are engaging in bad behaviour that places them at risk of entering the youth justice system. The program will also focus on building family capacity and responsibility for young people to re-engage them back into mainstream education.

The Back on Track program is expected to be operational mid-2019.
