Description

There are two goals for this project. The goal for part 1 of this project was to conduct a literature review that gathered information on community-based programs for justice-involved youth, the methods and interventions that were used, and the impacts programs had on recidivism. Particularly, the goal was to identify the most effective components of community-based programs to prevent future recidivism for youth. The literature review also sought to gather information on programs that utilized a positive youth justice and social justice youth development lens. The information found in the literature is intended to help improve Neighborhood House’s programming for justice-involved youth. The goal of the second portion of this report was to determine if the young women who participated in the GROW program at Neighborhood House recidivated at lower rates or on less severe charges than a comparison group of young women on probation within 6 months and 12 months following exit from the program. With the assistance of Ramsey County Community Corrections (RCCC), a comparison group was created and data regarding the participants’ recidivism and profiles were obtained. The information gathered from this analysis is intended to assist Neighborhood House in understanding the overall profiles and offense patterns of the young women they served form 2012- 2016 in comparison to similar young women on probation in Ramsey County, MN.
