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.
These totals above highlight our program’s expansion and development of more college/university cohorts fulfilling our mission and vision at their local juvenile detention centers across Ohio. If we compare these totals with the impact report from 2017, which marks the origin of the program, we see a tripling and quadrupling difference in the number of cohorts, student volunteers, residents, and service hours. Read more about our impact this fall in the report below.
