Au bout de la peur


BEYOND SCARED STRAIGHT!, the Academy Award-winning documentary film by Arnold Shapiro, made a huge impact with audiences through its portrayal of a radical and effective juvenile prevention/intervention program in a NJ prison. "BEYOND SCARED STRAIGHT" 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 - it's a combination of confrontation, information and compassion 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
