A Model Program

The Reality Tour began in Butler County, PA in 2003. The consequence-driven program was extremely successful and prompted the founding of CANDLE, Inc., the 501c3 non-profit that oversees the program. In 2004 demand grew for the replication of Butler's grassroots effort and the Model Program was developed.

This success has warranted an in depth evaluation of the theory and outcomes of the presentation. CANDLE, Inc. has undergone various evaluations and currently is listed on NREPP (National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices)
