The goal of YouImpact’s online course is to encourage defendants to develop a sense of personal accountability and to prevent recidivism. The online program has seen hundreds of defendants touched deeply by the stories shared by 15 victims and offenders. Defendants connect with the video subject on a personal level, unlike many live victim impact panels, the success of which can vary greatly from day to day.
Our program is based on the model of a victim impact course. Of all the YouImpact graduates, more than 72 percent say they have been inspired to change their destructive behavior. Another 11 percent felt it was a consequence of their actions while less than 1 percent felt the program was a punishment.
PERCENT OF YOUIMPACT GRADUATES SAY THE PROGRAM IS AN INSPIRATION FOR LIFE CHANGE
