The purpose of this program is to provide safe and creative out of school time programs in Vermont that will affect the rates of delinquent behavior among target age groups of 11-18 during the after school hours and out of school months in the summer when youth are most likely to engage in delinquent behavior and be victimized. Programs will include music education and supervised recreational activities for the City of Burlington's at-risk children and youth, including immigrant youth populations; youth programs and youth as resources and valued by the South Burlington community; safe and supervised out-of-school time activities at Swanton Teen Center and weekly after-school RAIDers meetings in family atmosphere; teen risk behavior education by medical professionals, for community service opportunities, for nutritious snacks, and for fun activities; and asset building recreational programs and activities at four Town of Johnson sites and adult mentorship. The projects will offer varying schedules and serve approximately 624 youth over the next year. NCA/NCF
