Overview

The BAHAY PAG-ASA YOUTH CENTER operates as a transformational facility exclusively for Children-in-Conflict with the Law (CICL) and Children-at-Risk (CAR) from Negros Occidental and surrounding areas. Through the center, we aim to;

Administer a wholistic formation/ transformational program with emphasis on basic education, spiritual formation, life skills and livelihood skills;

Provide competent and committed legal services which will include non-formal learning modules on criminal behavior and its consequences;

Provide an interfaced support system for the youth offenders after their release composed of the family, the school or workplace, the church, and the community to ensure successful re-integration; and pilot, assess and improve the program so that it may serve as a model for youth rehabilitation which maybe replicated in other areas of the country.
