Gold Medal programs are designed with high levels of integrity and theoretical compatibility with the science of adolescent development, and they were explicitly designed to prevent and reduce youth offending.
Moreover, these programs maintain a consistent level of investment in research and evaluation that is designed to build evidence of effectiveness. They operate as learning organizations and show a willingness to experiment and innovate. They also ensure that their basic activities are monitored and measured in order to assess their effects.
CCFY is honored by this designation and pleased to partner with John Jay to further Positive Youth Justice.
