The intervention supports young adults returning to their neighborhoods in Alameda County through the provider's Individualized Coaching Model. Clients are paired for 18 months with coaches with similar life experiences who will provide dedicated engagement and mentorship. Coaches coordinate with probation officers and trained professionals to streamline access to an array of services that is challenging for clients to navigate without support. The model is designed to address key contributing factors to recidivism, including chronic unemployment/poverty, substance abuse, criminogenic thinking, lack of positive peer relationships and role models, and other services and supports, such as subsidized housing, mental and physical health care, and education.

Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise.
