In the United States today, the hours immediately following school are the most likely time of victimization and engagement in negative risky behaviors, as children and youth are often left alone, unsupervised, and without constructive activities. Afterschool programs have been found to develop resiliency in at-risk youth by providing a safe environment for increasing academic attainment, opportunities for personal growth, and the development of supportive and significant relationships. The purpose of this grant proposal project was to develop an expansion program for MYTHIRDPLACE, a community-based afterschool mentorship program, so that it may become a community resource for youth involved in the public child welfare system. Variety of Southern California was identified as a potential source of funding for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
