Abstract (Summary)

There is evidence that suggests participation in cultural enrichment programs can help youth develop better academic and social skills and improve mental and physical health. The purpose of this project was to enhance existing cultural after-school program for children, seek a potential funding source to implement the program, and write a grant to fund the after-school cultural art program for Culture Shock LA. The program was designed using best practices. It teaches theater, art, and dance within a small group context using positive youth development strategies. Social work implications are discussed.
