By altering juvenile behavior, Prodigy prevents and diverts youth from moving deeper into the juvenile justice system, thus saving the state money, improving our communities and transforming young lives.


Prodigy is a research-based prevention, intervention and diversion program for at-risk youth ages 7-17. Prodigy uses visual and performing arts as a way to reach youth who live in high risk neighborhoods or who have been diverted or adjudicated from the juvenile justice system. Prodigy’s cost per youth and its recidivism rate are among the lowest in the state.
