A Positive Investment
Without intensive intervention, over half of Massachusetts impact young adults are re-arraigned within one year. By comparison, less than 15% of UTEC young adults in intensive programming and program grads were re-arraigned last year, and less than 1% of young adults were convicted. Annual incarceration costs in Massachusetts ($57k) are 60% higher than UTEC programming costs.
Public agencies, private foundations, corporate partners, and individual donors all invest in young people’s social and economic success through UTEC. Our operating budget reflects the multi-year span of our program model, from street outreach to post-employment supports, and our commitment to performance measurement.
