Youth Selection

Youth Selection

TYLA works with community groups, the NZ Police and Child Youth and Family Services to identify those most likely to benefit from engagement with the TYLA programme.

We work in partnership with the NZ Police for the benefit of New Zealand's youth.


The TYLA programme aims to identify children and youth displaying at risk
behaviour. These are children who are at risk of offending or are offending and who have come to the attention of the Police, the community and the school.


The child’s educational provider and family are contacted to ascertain the unique circumstances surrounding the child. Once identified as a potential candidate and armed with the appropriate approvals, an assessment report is requested.
