  Annotation: The authors distinguish the Intensive Aftercare Program (IAP) model from other models and programs that have been implemented and assessed with varying degrees of success and analyze individual IAP initiatives.
  Abstract: While other aftercare evaluations have not all been experimental in design, the IAP evaluation uses experimental methodology to gauge the success of four projects supported by the Office of Juvenile Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in their implementation of the IAP model. Aftercare initiatives, including the IAP model, are examined in light of a University of Maryland report on the effectiveness of various crime prevention strategies. Recent juvenile aftercare initiatives in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Michigan are briefly described. The OJJDP's IAP approach is examined, with mention of pilot programs in Colorado, Nevada, New Jersey, and Virginia. A comparative analysis of aftercare projects is presented in a matrix, and the effectiveness of aftercare programs is discussed with respect to juvenile rehabilitation and treatment. The authors conclude effective aftercare programs must include rehabilitation and services to address the needs of individual juveniles. 71 references, 5 tables, and 1 figure
