Data from almost 1,000 different programs and case management units of the Prevention, Intervention, and Commitment program components of Floridaâ€™s Department of Juvenile Justice were collected and analyzed. The youth who completed prevention programs in general had lower rates of subsequent involvement with the juvenile justice system than did those who did not complete such programs. This finding suggests that programs that are able to engage youth and their families and motivate them to complete services in prevention may be more effective. Overall findings for prevention programs suggest that the most successful programs address multiple risk factors in multiple domains in the lives of youth.
