A review of the LRE experience indicates that LRE also has enormous potential to prevent delinquency, substance abuse, and other problem behaviors. As with many social programs, rigorous evaluations of LRE are scarce, but there is substantial evidence that the principles underlying LRE programs squarely address those factors that research has shown put youth at risk of delinquency. This Bulletin reviews that evidence and identifies directions for future development and evaluation of LRE programs.
