The objective of this study was to analyse the impact of the type of intervention on youth reoffending. Moreover, the possible influence that the offender’s gender and level of risk could have on this relationship was also explored. Juvenile offenders from four different types of educational interventions participated in the study (N D 210): victim offender mediation (VOM) as a diversion procedure, and case closure, reprimand, and community service as dispositions. Aged between 14-18 years, they were assessed by means of the Youth Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (YLS/CMI). Recidivism rates were evaluated as the number of new records in a follow-up period of 24 months. Results of this study showed that type of intervention (diversion versus dispositions) had no apparent effect on youth recidivism. Furthermore, an important aspect to consider in youth assessment was the different impact that risk level had on boys’ and girls’ recidivism. [-]
