Description: This project is a randomized controlled trial of a new intervention, the Rapid Employment and Development Initiative (READI) Chicago, designed to reduce the likelihood of serious violence involvement among men at the highest risk of it. First, READI identifies individuals in Chicago at the highest risk of being involved in a shooting. Then, it provides them with 18 months of supported, subsidized work alongside cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and personal development programming. In theory, this kind of programming could reduce the most socially costly forms of violent crime without incurring the collateral costs of stepped-up law enforcement efforts.
