Abstract

This study reports data on the challenges and needs of girls engaged in delinquent
behaviour and the effectiveness of services provided by a girls’ home. Implications
and suggestions for the planning and implementation of effective programmes
and services in alternative educational settings are included. It concludes that
alternative education is not just a change of educational environment for youths
in trouble, an understanding of the unique needs of girls and female offenders
must be translated into practice as educators continue to find solutions for
helping girls who are engaging in risky or delinquent behaviours.
