Research indicates that the after-school hours present risks for school-aged children residing in low-income areas. This project report explores these risks and how character education implemented in after-school programs can minimize these risks for Latino children. A literature review was performed to explore the history of character education in the United States and an examination of existing character education programs was completed in an effort to determine if the component has presented benefits for school-aged children. The proposed character education component will be implemented in the already existing after-school programs in the city of Santa Ana, California. The program aims to decrease the needs for disciplinary action at school and to instill the ability to apply learned values to real life experiences. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant are not requirements for successful completion of the project.
