Help protect our communities in this crucial leadership role

Burnaby Youth Custody Services, along with Prince George, is one of two youth custody centres in the province which, as a key component of the youth justice system, provide an emotionally and physically safe custodial environment for young persons in conflict with the law. Youth Custody Centres are legally designated facilities pursuant to federal and provincial legislation, with a primary mandate to protect public safety through the provision of rehabilitative programs and services.

Research clearly indicates that youth in custody face significant health, mental health, and substance abuse issues, in addition to challenges achieving success in the community. Many youth in custody have experienced or have been exposed to traumatic events which influence their ability to cope, manage emotion, and engage in socially appropriate behaviours. These historical events often lead to high risk behaviours (e.g., self-harm) which make youth in custody vulnerable and in need of close supervision, monitoring and guidance.

The Senior Youth Supervisor is responsible for maintaining youth and staff safety in the custody environment within established legislation, policy and procedures, and for mentoring youth supervisors to establish and maintain effective relationships with youth that contribute to learning new, socially appropriate behaviours. The Senior Youth Supervisor is a role model and ensures a strengths-based approach is used to facilitate positive change for residents, and performs their duties with honesty, integrity and trust. The Senior Youth Supervisor works collaboratively with Youth Supervisors, colleagues, managers, service providers and volunteers to ensure effective integrated service planning, to ensure the protection of resident rights, and to implement trauma informed practices within the daily operations of the youth custody centre.

This position is responsible for the administration of internal justice practices consistent with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Youth Criminal Justice Act, Youth Justice Act, Child, Family and Community Service Act, Youth Custody Regulation and Youth Custody policy, procedures and local standing orders.
