This data-based manuscript illustrates the effects of a Tier 2 transition intervention for youth leaving secure facilities and reentering their communities. The described intervention is a curriculum designed to be delivered in secure facilities and assist youth transitioning to school, work, and community. Two separate studies are presented with outcomes related to post-release engagement and resilience. This curriculum is being used as a Tier II intervention.
