Good Shepherd Services Evaluation Work Plan

gss_guidebook_thumbThis work plan was drafted specifically for the youth justice programs at Good Shepherd Services (GSS), to serve as a tool for its continued use in aiding court-involved youth. A key part of the GSS mission is to surround at-risk New York City youth and their families with a web of support that promotes self-sufficiency. The LIFE program at GSS is based on a theory of change that incarceration and removal of youth from their home negatively affects their physical and psychological well-being, academic progress, and emotional development. The program provides services focusing on education, family, and community engagement designed to provide juveniles with more structured time for pro-social activities.
