  • Significantly fewer juvenile court appearances.
  • Remarkable academic improvment, especially in core subjects. 
  • Behavior changes at home with moms reporting more respectful attitude, ownership of their actions, self-confidence, and greater stability. 
  • Post-program goals include thoughful decision-making, awareness of new possibilities through expanded horizons, setting higher standards for themselves, and the ability to manage peer pressure.
