Why Do We Evaluate Juvenile Justice Programs?

It is important that juvenile justice programs be evaluated for several reasons.

  1. Evaluation demonstrates whether a program is successful in meeting its goals and objectives.
  2. Evaluation takes performance measurement a step further by ruling out other explanations for program results.
  3. Evaluation reveals strengths and weaknesses of a program.
  4. Evaluation provides an objective assessment of program effectiveness.
  5. Programs using evaluation to demonstrate accomplishments are more likely to secure future funding.
