240 young men and women have participated in the program over the past two years. 31 of them even became military personnel. According to the podcast, another 136 young people stayed on track because of the training: they went back to school or found work.
The remaining 73 youth left the program early. They did not abide by the agreements, and they no longer felt the desire to do so, or external circumstances prevented them from doing so.

It turned out that he had surrendered to ‘larger’ criminals and was arrested and imprisoned for armed robbery,” says assistant Cornet. Trademarks, Chief Program Counsel, Vs Crime Bureau.
