Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $345,530)

The Our Club program will provide educational, health and academic programs to 300 youth ages 12 to 18 in five structured communities based after- school settings of Pulaski County, Arkansas. The programs target high school youth exposed to community risk factors of unemployment, and crime. The goal of the program will be to enhance the protective factors of these youth and to increase their commitment to education and reduce the exposure to the juvenile justice system. The program seeks to increase the accessibility of after-school programming and enrichment activities for all youth in Pulaski County and provide ACT preparation classes that are available to all county youth in the 10th-12th grade. The project's progress will be tracked through the number of youth who participate in one or more of the program's components and by the number of programs that are made available to the youth.
