Who we serve
YouImpact gives offenders an opportunity to face the impact of destructive behaviors through a personal, visual and interactive multimedia experience. The objective is to inspire behavioral change and encourage the substitution of destructive individual decisions and habits with community consciousness and involvement. It is a non-judgmental approach that recognizes the humanity of the offender and his or her need for encouragement and support to become a positive participant in the community. At the same time, it provokes a change of heart and promotes responsibility.
The Court System
YouImpact supports the court and probation systems by offering an alternative to live Victim Impact Panels. The virtual teaching environment allows offenders to participate interactively, thus reinforcing individual responses and responsibility.
The programming offered has the ability to be tailored to the needs and demands of court systems across the country. It is cost-effective and time-effective because of its online accessibility and the fact that the offenders themselves pay the costs of the program.
Repeat offenders and recidivism are some of the most disheartening aspects of law enforcement. YouImpact is a merciful yet uncompromising educational encounter that effects a genuine awakening of conscience and heart – the only factor known to actually reduce recidivism.
YouImpact was developed to provide resources to those on destructive paths who are in need of connection, support, and mentoring to be empowered to change their lives. The multimedia programming encourages participants to share their experiences with others within their community as well as those in the YouImpact Community.
