In 2003 and early 2004 the Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) introduced Targeted Re-Entry (TR) into four sites, partnering with state juvenile correctional facilities in Mobile, Alabama; Anchorage, Alaska; Benton, Little Rock, and North Little Rock, Arkansas; and Milwaukee and Wales, Wisconsin. The UAA Justice Center managed data collection in the Anchorage site at McLaughlin Youth Center for an evaluation project conducted by Indiana University through a grant from Boys and Girls Club of America under federal funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
Targeted Re-entry is a juvenile aftercare approach derived from the Intensive Aftercare Program (IAP) model (Altschuler & Armstrong, 1994a; 1994b) intended to help adjudicated youth make a successful transition into society after they have been incarcerated.
