The IMPACT program has developed a curriculum which addresses the main thinking errors and problem behaviors associated with recidivism. Using the combined experiences of the curriculum developers and the research on delinquency and behavior, the curriculum provides youth with a unique perspective and knowledge from individuals who have lived their experiences.

At the completion of each module a youth receives a graduation ceremony and certificate provided by the IMPACT program. At each session youth will participate in a variety of discussion topics, activities and role plays. The IMPACT facilitators are trained to use positive incentives and reinforcement during the group sessions. The facilitators strive to create a positive open atmosphere, and implement a 4-to-1 ratio of positive reinforcement to consequences for negative behavior.
