Can you please explain a bit more about what do you mean by Juvenile Home? Is it something like the 'correction center' that is usually used by the police and legal authorities for young 'criminals' (sorry I couldn't find an appropriate alternative word to replace criminal, I didn't like it to be used for minors.)

hey neo,

When i said shelter for juvenile - I meant a place where young orphan or street children who are involved voluntarily or involuntarily in activities like crime, physical abuse, stealing, drug addicts are given shelter, rejuvenated,and educated.

So basically i am looking at facilities like rehabilitation centers, health care centers, recreational and vocational training ,residing and educational facilities.

A small world of their own, where they can find a new direction in their life. Be self-sustaining using all the facility and grow into better adults.

I hope i am clear and have answered your question. Edited Sat Dec 03 2011, 06:14pm

hi..i also did juvenile delinquent center in my thesis...i'll try to give an idea below to explain how i understood my project and derived my concept...hope it'll be of help to you..
Youth Correctional Institutes are safe places that, aim in behavioral development of juveniles coming in conflict with law & in the best circumstances offer some hope for a better future . But this linear thought can’t lead towards overall perception of the project.For instance Tomal, Rehnuma, Jamilur staying in correction institutes come from diversified backgrounds.

Tomal dropped out from school to earn money because of his mother’s illness, who used to sell food(e.g.boiled eggs,cakes etc.) on footpath to run a family of five members & was the only earning member of the family. She got beaten by the poice badly for not giving bribe and got seriously sick.tomal had to start working. The complaint against him was of carrying Phensidyle for which he has been brought to correctional institute. He did this to earn for his family’s survival and his mother’s medicine.

Rehnuma is a 14 year old girl belonging to a posh family. She was provided with all luxuries by her parents whom she met few times a week. She became addicted to drugs which relieved her from the pain of not getting her parents in spite of them being alive.

Jamilur is a 13 yr old boy who is used to pickpocket and steal things even from his own home.

These are the children coming into the same correctional institute. For their delinquency society, family and the system is liable. The question is how an institute can be a gateway of correction for all of them. The answer lies in finding out baseline which is common for all of them.

Firstly, I thought that its ethics, morality, values which has to be developed or corrected of the juveniles which will, within them create the sense of good and bad and stop help them resist delinquent behaviour. As most the delinquents are from lower economic backgrounds, it made me feel that rehabilitation is more important than correction. But afterwards I found out that "building up values" is the wrong thing to aim for. It’s the society, surroundings who's ethics and morality can be questioned and has to be developed, not the juveniles'.

HOPE & SENSITIVITY are things that’ll encourage the juveniles to get corrected. Unless there is hope, there is no need for development of current situation in which they are in. Sensitivity will create an understanding of black and white, good or bad.

The one liner of this idea can possibly be "A SPACE FOR ENLIGHTMENT".
