Operation Challenge is a highly structured disciplined program for 14 prisoners running for 17 weeks in length within Cadell Training Centre. It targets young adult male offenders who are in contact with the prison system primarily for the first time. It gives them the opportunity to address their offending behaviour though education, team orientated physical fitness, cognitive skills, core programs, employment and reparation to the community. The ultimate goal of the program is for participants to address their offending behaviour.
