Clay Yeager's 37 years experience has taken him from the time he began his career as a probation officer, when the prevailing view was that nothing worked when it came to addressing the behaviors of young people reaching the juvenile justice system, to now, as a consultant, he has made a significant contribution to the use of evidence-based programs across the US.
e is not a researcher, but has a deep respect for high quality evidence. These days he straddles the worlds of research, policy and practice, but his youthful eagerness to "change the world" as a probation officer was gradually eroded by working in a system that struggled to help the young people it served. At that time the scientific community had not established how to determine whether or not prevention worked and there was a general sense that it all cost too much. is career took a turn in the mid 1990s when he first came across evidence about the effectiveness of prevention work. He heard David Hawkins and Rico Catalano, the architects of Communities that Care (CtC), talk about the potential of evidence-based programs to promote the health development of children.Then, awareness of these types of programs was low and there was, as Yeager describes it, a tendency for "fad of the day" - ideas that sounded good and felt good, like boot camps, but had no evidence. fter learning about CtC he began to advocate for a small amount of the Pennsylvania state budget spent on treating the adults who end up in prison to be diverted to fund prevention activity. Essentially, the challenge given to Yeager was to discover how to take a program that has been carefully refined and tested under the control of a university research team and develop a model that allows the program to be provided more widely without compromising its quality? Yeager saw this an issue of supply and demand. He knew that there was a healthy demand for the program and it was his job to build the organization and the infrastructure required to meet the demand. After two years with NFP the program was serving 20,000 families in 20 states in the US. hen reflecting on his time with NFP he says that he spent about half of his time in Washington advocating on behalf of the program to try to secure the support of politicians to stimulate further demand for the program. Yeager describes the idea as "very simple" and it surprises him that EBA is the only body doing this type of work in the US. The model differs from normal arrangements by introducing a middle man between the government agency and the providers of services. The middle man - in this case EBA - holds all the financial risk for the programmes but does not provide them. This is down to the providers whom EBA manages - or as Yeager puts it "holds their feet to the fire". He continues to work with EBA and remains connected with the developers of CtC. He is clearly proud of what has been achieved in the US. His contribution should not be under-estimated. He was for example, the first recipient of the Visionary of Pennsylvania Award for his role as one of the principal architects of the state's far-reaching and coordinated evidence-based prevention strategies. Yeager is also quick to recognize the country's weaknesses. He acknowledges that there remains a long way to go to and is concerned that the economic argument in favor of investing in evidence-based programs will be lost when politicians have to choose where the axe should fall on public expenditure.
