The Court System
YouImpact is an online program that supports the court and probation systems by offering an alternative to traditional victim impact panels.
The online environment allows defendants to participate interactively within a set timetable. The structure of the program itself helps to reinforce individual responsibility.
YouImpact program fits the needs of any court system across the country. It is both cost-effective and time-saving to the court. The program is entirely based online, allowing the defendant to access the program from anywhere there is an Internet connection.
The defendant is responsible for the entire cost of the program, alleviating the court from the expense. As we know, if you have the funds to harm yourself, you have the funds to heal yourself.
Repeat offenders and recidivism are frustrating aspects of law. While part of the many impaired driving consequences, YouImpact does not judge the defendant, but upholds an uncompromising educational encounter that effectively portrays the chain of events which lead from one dangerous decision and how it affects an entire community. With 1.1 million drivers arrested for driving under the influence in 2014 in America1, you can see the need for a program like YouImpact.
The goal of the program is to elicit a genuine change in behavior – the only factor known to actually reduce recidivism.
Of the many people who have gone through the YouImpact program, more than 72 percent say the online program has inspired and motivated them to make lasting changes in their lives.
