The rehabilitation process is a participatory one, with the child, parent/guardian and SCAN-Goa . It is carried out keeping in mind the child’s best interest. Children referred by SCAN-Goa for further education, skills development and job placements are monitored periodically. This helps SCAN-Goa to change the rehabilitation plan if required. 


Social Investigation


There is lack of probation services in Goa. The Juvenile Justice Board (North and South) refers cases to SCAN-Goa to conduct home studies and submit the Social Investigation Report.  The home visits are jointly conducted by the lawyer and social worker. The report provides an overview of the present status of the child and the rehabilitation required.

Community Service


SCAN-Goa was the pioneer agency to develop linkages between Juvenile Justice Boards, police and institutions. After a conviction, the child is referred to us and depending upon the crime an appropriate community service is planned for the child. The placement is monitored regularly, and there is regular interaction with the community agency.


Job Placement

Children are referred to SCAN-Goa by the police, public prosecutors, Juvenile Justice Boards or by the community. SCAN-Goa is associated with hotel industries who provide job opportunities for these children referred by the organisation.
