The YouImpact program is unlike traditional victim impact panels. It can be completed from anywhere in the world, 24/7 and includes video statements from both victims and defendants. The stories are meant to create a change in negative behavior by emphasizing the importance of taking responsibility for your actions. The videos within the program are paired with 100 percent pass or fail exams that reinforce the message.
The program consists of 11 real life stories from DUI offenders as well as victims.
YouImpact has been utilized throughout the state of Florida.
Help is readily available 24 hours a day.
Since 2009 thousands of offenders have used the YouImpact program. The program is an online, interactive video-based experience, which is nine times more effective than traditional programs. The content is carefully constructed to emphasize individual responsibility and encourage reflection.
