Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $245,946)

National Community Renaissance (CORE) will implement "After School and Beyond" on site in 13 affordable housing communities in some of the most at-risk neighborhoods in Southern California. This research-based violence prevention curriculum will serve at least 260 children and youth in grades K-12 over a 12 month period. Project activities include training after-school staff on an anti-violence curriculum; implementing weekly violence prevention activities; training after-school staff; documenting project impact on youth outcomes; and designing a study on the impact of housing-based services. Progress will be measured by program attendance, the percent of youth who exhibit changes in attitudes and behaviors associated with youth violence, the percent of staff who are trained, the number of trainings offered, and the delivery of a plan for the research study.
