This project is a program evaluation of The Recreation Center, an after school center located in a public housing development in Long Beach, California. The focus of this evaluation is to look at how The Recreation Center is run, what kind of program attendees desire, and provide recommendations that will help program staff increase attendance and engagement. The data for this report were collected through interviews with attendees, parents, and staff, along with two years of participation and observation by the researcher.
Previous research has shown that after school programs can be beneficial places for children to learn and grow. This project highlights what is working at The Center and identifies aspects of the program that can be improved. The recommendations made aim to create a program that is utilized consistently by families and to bolster the place that The Center has within the community.
