Pathways to Peace: Examining the Impact of Youth Intervention Programs on Delinquencies

Pathways to Peace and Teen Courts are the latest intervention models to address delinquency. This research compares the effectiveness of the programs in addressing juvenile delinquencies. The study compares three groups that have received interventions. The first and second groups consist of those that have received either Pathways to Peace or Teen Court processes or interventions. The third group consists of those that have undergone both processes. This study will examine existing databases for each program on the recidivism rates and patterns of offending for these youths. It will also try to unravel demographic and environmental factors that tend to correlate with offending and recidivism. A comparison of the intervention strategies for both programs will be outlined.
