Description

The Rapid Referral Program is a partnership between Spectrum Youth & Family Services of Burlington, Vermont and the Chittenden County District Court. The objective of this evaluation of the Rapid Referral Program was to investigate the feasibility of generating a valid test control group that could be used in confirming the significance of the results from the outcome evaluation conducted on the Program in June, 2012. The result of this outcome evaluation revealed a low level of recidivism (18.7%) for subjects who had participated in the Program. However since a control group was not available for comparison, it was not possible to determine from the research whether the low recidivism rate was due to the Program or due to other factors. This evaluation was initiated to address this issue.
