Mission of the Overstrand Child & Youth Care Centre

The aim of the Overstrand Child & Youth Care Centre is to protect the interests, well-being, safety and development of children within the context of family and community and to safeguard the rights of children.

School and Community Interaction

The target group is 6 to 14 year old children in the Overberg geographical area who have been sent by court order to the Centre. To assist the children further, we enroll them into our local Primary Schools for exposure to and interaction with the community. Various opportunities are given to the children to develop a balanced outlook on life. The families of the children are encouraged to maintain contact with them.
