Our After School Programs are designed to help at-risk children in US cities, at an important time in the day when these children are all too often vulnerable to influences and situations that lead them down the wrong path in life. Music is at the core of many of our programs, creating an opportunity for us to have a far reaching impact on many aspects of their lives, including their education, creativity, discipline, and self esteem.
The after school period is a time when far too many children engage in unwanted behavior which can corrupt their morals and landing them in trouble. School days, between 3 pm and 6pm, are among the peek hours for teens to commit crimes, be involved in accidents as they walk home, be victims of crime, and smoke, drink and use drugs. Every day, huge numbers of children are out of school while their parents are at work and, this creates an “after-school gap”.
Hope For a New Generation's After School Programs provide an alternative to gangs and street life, allowing kids to develop new skills and helping to nurture their social skills.
Our programs are designed to achieve a range of goals, and provide a number of benefits to the children who participate in them, including:
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
