The Adolescent Day Programme (ADP) addresses the needs of young people who are at risk of poverty and social exclusion. The service caters for young people between the ages of 14 to 18 who exhibit challenging behaviour. The programme supports young people by providing them with a secure environment where they can easily express their feelings and emotions without any judgement.
In return, through the skills provided throughout the programme, the adolescents can lead a secure and healthy lifestyle within the community they live in, despite several challenges that they might have come across. A cluster of young people who attends the programme comes from broken homes, which may result in homelessness.
In addition, ADP also caters for those young people who do not fit into the educational system, including school dropouts. Other issues that the service provides are related to youths who may be into prostitution, young offenders, those who make use of illicit substances, and young people with an addiction problem, such as technology, drugs, and alcohol.
