The All Saint's Community Service and Development Corporation's purpose is to help children in a low-performing school increase their academic achievement and to keep low-income children physically and psychologically safe and secure during afterschool and summer hours, preventing delinquency or involvement in criminal activity in a neighborhood with a history of violent crime and drug-related arrests. This project will serve low-income children ages 5-12 living in public housing in Hoboken, NJ. This project will provide 90 young people with afterschool academic support, including tutoring, homework help, and computer assisted learning to help them advance to the next school grade, maintain or increase their grades, and pass standardized math and language arts exams. A community center facility located in the neighborhood is open throughout the year to provide youth with positive and enriching cultural, recreational, and fitness activities afterschool and during the summer. To measure progress toward the project's goals, the program will monitor report cards, performance on standardized tests, advancement to the next grade, attendance and participation records, levels of offence/re-offence, and changes in desired behaviors.
