The Benton/Iowa County After-School Project is a partnership between Four Oaks Family and Children's Services and Benton/Iowa County Decategorization Project. This project will continue to provide an after-school program for up to 40 youth, 7th-12th graders, from Benton and Iowa Counties. These at-risk youth will be referred to the program from schools, Juvenile Courts Service, community agencies, health and mental health providers, law enforcement, and parents. These youth will be able to participate in a structured after school program that features Aggression Replacement Training and Project Alert. The project goals will be to increase accessibility to evidence-based Model/Blueprint programs for at-risk youth. Performance will be measured by the number of youth/families served: 80% of the youth/families referred to evidence-based programs are sustained in care and complete the programming and 75% of youth completing programs remain at home at discharged.
