Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $297,371)

The proposed program is designed to keep Bridgeport youth safe and healthy, reducing the incidence of juvenile crime and promoting academic achievement, and socially and environmentally responsible behavior. Approximately 2,500 urban youth per day, all of whom qualify for free/reduced lunch, in 22 public schools serving grades K-12, will have access to an array of academic, recreational, and health activities including homework help, thematic studies, physical education, special needs services, cultural and performing arts programs, training and employment programs, and organized sports. Progress toward the goals of the proposed program will be measured formatively through site visits and summatively by an outside evaluator with expertise in outcome driven quality after school and summer programming. Past experience showed that implementation of proposed activities leads to academic success, reduction in juvenile crime, and more responsible youth. NCA/NCF
