Beyond Scared Straight

Beyond Scared Straight


Beyond Scared Straight produced by Arnold Shapiro, profiles the new approach to keeping today’s teens from becoming tomorrow’s prisoners. The power of the original Scared Straight! program has inspired dozens of inmate-run intervention programs in men’s and women’s prisons across the country. And in many dramatic ways, these 21st Century programs are very different, because today’s youth need a different approach – a combination of confrontation, information and communication 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.
