This Report presents the findings from a 5-year, multisite evaluation of the implementation and outcomes of the Intensive Aftercare Program (IAP), which was sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). IAP was a major initiative in aftercare programming during the 1990s and has received considerable national attention. It addresses a critical problem facing the nation's juvenile justice system: how to effectively intervene with high-risk, incarcerated juvenile offenders who have demonstrated high recidivism rates and continue to offend as adults. By Richard G. Wiebush, Dennis Wagner, Ph.D. , Betsie McNulty, Ph.D. , Yanqing Wang, and Thao N. Le, Ph.D.
