We strongly believe in data-driven decision-making and evidence-based programming that will impact our residents. Access the resources below to learn more about our impact through our research and survey findings as well as the research and survey findings from similar organizations.

A comparison of both the fall and spring semesters by the numbers.

*The original projection was 190+ direct service hours but couldn’t be fulfilled because of
the coronavirus pandemic, which suspended our program halfway into the spring’s creative
writing workshop for all of the cohorts.

As we continue to expand and develop more cohorts across Ohio, our impact will continue to increase as a result. We will educate more student volunteers about our organization and the juvenile justice system and those student volunteers will teach creative writing to more youth, or residents who are incarcerated.
