Building Network to Solve Community Problems: Youth As Leaders by Daniel F. Bassill
Is designed to provide after-school activities to Chicago youth, while simultaneously preparing them for the demands of the workplace. By interacting with caring adults and pursuing subjects that interest them, After School Matters students learn skills that are essential to their future success -- like problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork. In addition, many have the opportunity to build on their experience by working as summer employees or interns in their communities.
