Results indicated that Safe and Successful Youth Initiative had a statistically significant and positive impact on reducing the number of victims of violent crimes, aggravated assaults, and homicides per month that were reported to the police.
A city with SSYI has approximately 60 fewer victims of violence each year,
ages 14-24, per 100,000 citizens over the post-intervention period.
