This research report discusses two programs developed by SAGE. The LIFESKILLS program works with youth considered to be at risk for sexual exploitation. The GRACE program works with adults who have been arrested for prostitution. This research used a four-part participatory evaluation model, and findings suggest that involvement with these programs reduces contact with the criminal justice system. The researchers also made recommendations for program improvement.
