This course is intended for foreign national juveniles who need different treatment from that of Japanese juveniles. The foreign national juveniles are provided with guidance on Japanese-language acquisition and the basic life style to enable them to learn the Japanese language and the rules that govern society in Japan. In addition, practical information and guidance on future life plans are provided with due consideration of whether they will remain in Japan or not after being discharged.
