Reentry Program Research Proposal
This Project is scenario-based. In this scenario, you have been hired as a research consultant by a parole office to create a research proposal to understand the effectiveness of a new, four-week reentry program that will be administered to parolees immediately upon release from the prison. The program involves immediate placement into a job, housing, mandatory counseling, and daily check-ins for the parolee with the parole officer. The office supervisor explains to you that the reason for the four-week reentry program is due to the high recidivism rates (66%) in the past year of all parolees in that county, many of whom recidivated within the first four weeks upon release. The four-week reentry program has not started yet. The parole office is waiting to see your proposal and is willing to implement the program as part of the research design.
Submit the introduction and literature review sections of your Project. Please refer to the Project Directions below to see the required lengths for each section.
- An introduction providing some preliminary information on the brief history of this issue and some relevant current events (two pages). Develop a research question.
- A literature review on five current (last five years) research studies on the topic to include the research methods used and the findings of the research.
