Robertson Correctional Centre’s young offenders will get a taste of freedom as they embark on a 240km bicycle challenge to spread the message about the crime.
The Breaking Cycle of Crime challenge runs from 7 – 14 April, where the group will cycle the 240km through the Langeberg region.
The young intimates will do the challenge with community members, as they stop in and educate the youth about the consequences of engaging in a life of crime through sharing their stories and how the choices they made caused them to end up in prison.
The Breaking the Cycle of Crime project is a part of the President’s Award of Young Empowerment. The national youth programme focusses on uplifting and changing young people to empower them and equip the for their future.
