Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $49,361)

In 1999, the Black Ministerial Alliance (BMA) established the Victory Generation After-school Prevention Program. The focus is to help prevent low income youth from becoming involved in the increasing incidences of violent gang and drug related activities. The target population is African American and Latino youth ages 5-14 living in the Boston neighborhoods. BMA will serve 200 youth who are likely to offend or become victims of violence. The primary focus of the program will be on tutoring, culture, recreation, and providing counseling and advice for each parent during the school year to promote their participation in their child/children's growth and development. The program will strive to improve the academic performance, enhance the self-discipline, and provide the adult guidance during after-school hours to the youth. NCA/NCF
