Each day more than 15 million school aged children are unsupervised from 3-8 PM; during these hours, juvenile crime triples (Beyond the Bell).
Virtually every child can profit from out-of-school programs that offer opportunities for positive development and an avenue for avoiding problem behaviors (Vision for Children At Risk).
For those young people with high needs who are most challenged, the availability of such quality programs can mean the difference between a life with positive, upward trajectory and one that is on a perilous, sometimes tragic course (Vision for Children At Risk).
