Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $98,948)
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center will implement a comprehensive after-school Computer Education Partnership Program targeted at 200 high-risk youth, 8-17 years of age, living in the Third Ward of Houston, TX, and children of parents staying at the MLK Jr. Center's Transition Center for Homeless Women. The program's goal is to reduce high rates of substance abuse, academic failure, and juvenile crime by providing youth with alternative activities during their unsupervised time. The program's strategy is to provide a safe, drug-free environment during after-school, weekend, and summer hours where youth can participate in a wide array of activities including mentoring and tutoring programs, study skills and IT training, cultural programs, conflict-resolution workshops, abstinence education, and chess classes. The MLK Jr. Center will report performance outputs such as program participation rates and performance measures such as participants' academic scores, delinquency rates and pre- and post surveys of attitudes and behaviors. The MLK Jr. Center will report their findings to OJJDP in the grantee's Categorical Assistance Progress Reports. NCA/NCF
