Juvenile Justice Program

Bell Shakespeare’s renowned Juvenile Justice program for young men and women commenced in 2010 at two NSW facilities – Frank Baxter and Juniperina Juvenile Justice centres – with the support of the NSW Department of Juvenile Justice. Since then, the program has expanded successfully with incredible impact and is currently delivered at Frank Baxter Juvenile Justice Centre (Kariong NSW), Reiby Juvenile Justice Centre (Airds NSW), Acmena Juvenile Justice Centre (Grafton NSW), and Parkville and Malmsbury Youth Justice Centres in VIC.

This incredible program would not be possible without the generous and visionary support of trusts and foundations including the Bill & Patricia Ritchie Foundation, the Neilson Foundation and the Scully Fund.

This program is only made possible through generous support from our donors. If you would like to help us continue to work in juvenile detention centres, and other at-risk communities throughout Australia, please consider donating to our Sharing Shakespeare giving program or contact  Debra Reinecke, Head of Development, on 02 8298 9082.

This program is supported by the Neilson Foundation and the Scully Fund.
