UTEC measures the “social and economic success” of our mission through three key outcome areas for our impact young adults:

  • Reduced Recidivism
  • Increased Employability
  • Increased Educational Attainment

When impact young adults achieve positive outcomes, our community sees the greatest impact and return on investment from safety, health, and economic development perspectives. UTEC represents a positive return on investment for our communities. UTEC’s cost per enrolled young adult is about $25,000 annually – far less than the $55,000 annual cost to house a young adult in a Massachusetts correctional facility (MA DOC, FY2015 data). Read more about UTEC’s Outcomes & Impact.
