節目介紹 Introduction

「現身說法」是描述為了減低未來青少年們犯罪率所用的新方法。而在此之前的節目內容的影響力,大大啟發了國內無數的無論是男性或女性監獄囚犯脫逃介入計畫的運作。當今的青少年需要有別於以往的處理方式-與正面接觸結合並進一步去深入了解這些站在危險邊緣的孩子們,站在他們角度看事物等。這個用於青少年的罪犯計畫將11到18歲,橫跨各種族及性別的孩子們帶入監獄中進行一天的密集體驗課程,讓他們見識到監獄內的真實樣貌。

Today's youth need a different approach - it's a combination of confrontation, information and compassion to try to reach these at-risk kids. These youthful offender programs put boys and girls of all ethnicities, ranging in age from 11-18, into intensive one-day in-prison sessions that show them the realities of life behind bars
