Youth At Risk

Youth at Risk programs are dedicated to mentoring and transforming the lives of young people in communities around the world.

A 1984 study of the Breakthrough Foundation Youth At Risk Program by Metametrics Inc. concluded that "The Youth at Risk Program group had an overall subsequent incident recidivism rate of 34.7 percent, compared to 55.1 percent for the comparison group. The overall serious offense recidivism rate (18.4 percent) was less than half that of the comparison group (40.8 percent). Evaluation conclusions are that the Youth at Risk Program has had a profound impact on the 155 youth participants."

Objectives of the Youth At Risk Program (as published in 1989)

- To produce a long term, measurable impact on the lives of both the youth in the program and the people with whom they associate;

- To prove conclusively that dealing effectively with Youth at Risk is not a hopeless undertaking;

- To have powerful, positive effect on local Youth at Risk related community agencies and schools;

- To demonstrate that a private, community-based, volunteer-intensive intervention is viable, sustainable and repeatable;

- To open opportunities for people at the grassroots level to make a difference through their own positve actions.
