Are there evidence-based studies about this program?

Yes. Evaluation research shows that the program produces the expected positive results. The results are attributed to the program itself, rather than to other extraneous factors or events.

We encourage you to read the studies provided on this website. The FASE (Foundation for Advancements in Science and Education) study, Intermediate Sanctions for Juvenile Offenders: A Utah Juvenile Court Case Study, is a detailed study.

In summary, FASE found “That so many youths who completed the program remained misdemeanor and felony free during the remainder of their adolescence is very encouraging. Further, many of the skills learned in this program could be expected to directly address and improve education and employment-related outcomes.”
