The Australian Government has provided funding to evaluate the effectiveness of Indigenous law and justice programs across five subject areas to identify the best approaches to tackling crime and justice issues and better inform government funding decisions in the future. This report presents the findings of subject area "C", 'Diversion programs'. It examined the impact of four programs designed to divert Indigenous people from entering the justice system. The four programs sit at different points along a continuum, ranging from prevention (addressing known risk factors for offending behaviour), early intervention (with identified at-risk young people), diversion (diverting from court process - usually for first or second time offenders), and tertiary intervention (treatment to prevent recidivism). The programs evaluated were: Aboriginal Power Cup, a sports-based prevention program in South Australia; Tiwi Islands Youth Development and Diversion Unit, an early intervention and diversion program that engages Tiwi youth who are at-risk of entering the criminal justice system in prevention activities; Woorabinda Early Intervention Panel Coordination Service, an assessment and referral program for early intervention and diversion, in Queensland; and Aggression Replacement Training, a group cognitive-behavioural program for youth assessed as at risk of offending or re-offending, also in Queensland.

In the first IEG evaluation of World Bank Group support to youth employment, the findings reveal short-term effects, limited positive results, and lack of evidence. The focus is on investment climate, labor market, and skills. An evidence-based, strategic approach using youth-specific, complementary interventions and multisectoral teams is needed.

This book outlines the development, implementation and evaluation of a project entitled “P.A.T.H.S. to Adulthood: A Jockey Club Youth Enhancement Scheme," with P.A.T.H.S. denoting Positive Adolescent Training through Holistic Social programmes. This pioneer project was conducted in Hong Kong between 2005 and 2012 with more than 210,000 participants. Its goal was to help students meet various challenges in their path to adulthood, with a focus on their psychosocial competencies, developmental assets and the promotion of healthy peer relationships. The project was initiated by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust in collaboration with the Government’s Social Welfare Department, Education Bureau and five universities in Hong Kong. Edited by the researchers of the project, Development and Evaluation of Positive Adolescent Training through Holistic Social Programs explores the nature of positive youth development (PYD), the application of PYD constructs to youth programs and implementation issues. Using multiple strategies, the book evaluates the overall effectiveness of the P.A.T.H.S. school-based programme and reveals that stakeholders had positive perceptions of the project, its implementers and benefits. Students in the program showed better positive development and displayed lower levels of substance abuse and delinquent behaviour than students in the control schools. The book also details lessons learned, emergent issues, future directions as well as insights into the development of positive youth development programs particularly in Chinese communities. Development and Evaluation of Positive Adolescent Training through Holistic Social Programs will appeal to all educators, administrators, psychologists, social workers and allied profeesionals looking to promote whole-person development in their students, especially those with in interest in education in China.
