Behavior Modification has changed the lives of many youth in the United States and they are on the right path again.  There are some who are role models in their communities, hold high paying jobs or spew propaganda on fornits to lower program enrolment. Behavior modification is a valuable tool in programs!  lol

nationalyouth.com is a marketing site

Ah! More flatulence from the program marketeers. I'm sure there's a term for this, but it escapes me at the moment... It's kinda like the internet version of an "infomercial."

Lots of pages that would appear to inform, but the real intent is the recruitment of potential marks.

Notice how they court you to contact them with a description of your needs, without ever really telling you who they are. Moreover, this particular website is registered under GoDaddy, so there's not even a verifiable registrant to identify them with. [See this post for commentary on a similar website which I tracked to a La Verkin, Utah, address, and which did appear to be WWASPS-related.]

There's also that less tangible and less quantifiable inculcation of the general population, instilling a vague generalized belief that sending "problem kids" to programs is an appropriate and widely accepted remedy, which comes about through the sheer number of these types of websites on the internet. But that subject is probably beyond the scope of this here post...

nationalyouth.com and "National Youth Network"

This website, incidentally, linked to in the OP above, is run by an organization which calls itself "National Youth Network."

Along with being an extremely ambiguous name, it's also possibly no coincidence that it is the exact same name of a program run by the U.S. Dept. of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Here's the March 1998 issue of In Action, the OJJDP's National Youth Network's newsletter, which describes said organization: Link (current cache on google). This appears to very much be a community-focused "youth involvement" organization, even if they do have (the lack of perspective to have) sponsors like D.A.R.E.

There's also an organization by that name founded in Burma aka Myanmar. However, it is unlikely to be confused with either of the two above, given the difficulties in font translation of much of their material. This appears to be a progressive pro-democracy group advocating for positive change, in response to the brutal and oppressive political situation there. Fwiw, here's their facebook page: National Youth Network

here's another one
That website is run by a family that also runs a teen transport company, insurance company for your kid's time in program, web design (to keep all these websites functioning optimally), and is also closely linked to a PI operation that specializes in GPS systems for prisoners under house arrest and in "locating runaways."

Outside of the last one mentioned, all these other businesses operate out of a single suite # in St. George, Utah. :D
