The Clapham Set: Root Cause Analysis

In 2009, The Clapham Set made it through to the semi-final round of Echoing Green’s social entrepreneurship selection process. They prepared the following root cause analysis to identify the root causes of recidivism and violence. It is a useful tool in understanding what causes crime and how to prevent it, and can be used as an example for conducting your own root cause analysis.

The Clapham Set's mission is to end cycles of violent crime and recidivism in Massachusetts by addressing their root causes. To accomplish this, the organization offers court-involved young men powerful incentives to participate in an urban leadership program that connects them to jobs and resources that eliminate the need to engage in underground employment and the violent crime that accompanies it.
