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.
