Incentives inspire positive behavior in youth and help youth develop responsibility and build skills.  Young peo­ple respond bet­ter to rewards than they do to threats of pun­ish­ment.  Rewards systems rec­og­nize that youth are still devel­op­ing a capac­i­ty for longer-term for­ward thinking and gives them practice with working toward and achieving short-term, man­age­able goals.  This group researched reward structures for encouraging positive behavior among youth.
