Students in alternative education face several educational barriers and are more susceptible to risk factors, including the risk of educational failure, substance abuse, juvenile delinquency, homelessness, or teen pregnancy. After-school programs are an empirically demonstrated deterrent to these risks factors. The purpose of this project was to write a grant to obtain operational costs in order to re-implement an after-school program which was no longer funded for alternative education students. The amount requested would be used for a youth development-based model for the after-school program. Activities proposed consisted of tutoring, a built-in mentoring component, sports recreation, art modules, and community service-learning opportunities. Funds would be provided to ACCESS Safe Schools and Support Services, which strives to inspire and encourage its students to discover their strengths and develop character in order to maximize their academic achievement by providing them with opportunities to develop positive factors in their lives.
