One Summer Plus made impacts on the teenagers who were present for the study. Even if it does not show up in the statistics, these kids were taught responsibility and how to resolve conflict. They will be able to use that for the rest of their life. I believe that it was more than just the summer jobs, but the people who put the program together should be credited for the success that comes from One Summer Plus.

As a result of putting a teenager in an adult court, the teen is exposed to more violence and abuse; it can force a teen to commit suicide and it does the same thing for adults however, teens are more susceptible. The only difference is that teens are more vulnerable, weaker, and less likely to defend themselves not because they do not want to but because they will eventually be overpowered.
