Youth Camp Intervention begins with awareness and commitment to bring about change. Lack of empirical evidence should not be used as an excuse for failing to acknowledge and attempting

to intervene in this or other serious social issues. In time, rigorous evaluation of interventions will help us determine what practices are most likely to reduce recidivism and prevent victimization. 

WEW will hold sessions in our training camp facility for at risk children to educate them and hold the youth accountable for offending and other behaviors while understanding and validating the impact of past and present exposure to violence.  Recognize that early learning experiences influence how current experience is interpreted. For example, exposure to violence may cause a youth to view: 

  • violence as a means of establishing status/position;
 
  • violence as the means to most ends – frequent solution;
 
  • adults as untrustworthy and believe in youth vigilantism;
 
  • life as immediate and lack future orientation.
 

Help for Victims and Perpetrators:

WEW will Address both victim and perpetrator issues in interventions without allowing  
past victimization to excuse or justify offending behavior. Develop and communicate explicit messages about individual accountability for behavior. For example: 

  • people are responsible for their behaviors;
 
  • provocation by another person does not justify violent responses;
 
  • the only person one can control is oneself;
 
  • individuals have the capacity to change their behaviors.
 

Help for Youth:

Teach and reinforce individual accountability for behavior through cognitive  
and behavioral approaches at all levels of the program. For example:
 

  • provide consistent and fair consequences that clearly demonstrate the link  
    between the youth’s actions and the responses she/he experiences;
 
  • implement positive (e.g., rewarding to the youth) and negative (e.g., unpleasant 
    to the youth) consequences as soon as possible after the behavior;
 
  • link consequences logically to the nature and magnitude of the youth’s  
    behavior;
 
  • adjust program when necessary and build in supports to ensure youth can  
    experience some success; focus intervention on both cognitions (e.g., the youth’s attitudes, beliefs,  
    and thinking patterns) and behaviors (e.g., increasing pro-social behaviors and  
    decreasing maladaptive and antisocial behaviors).
