Abstract

This study examined after school programs as a strategy for preventing juvenile delinquency. The dependent variable, after school programs was correlated with the independent variable, juvenile delinquency. The population consisted of 24 members of the East Dekalb Boys and Girls Club, both male and female, between the ages of 10-14. The participants were given informed consent forms. A 25-item questionnaire was administered to the participants at the after school program. The Chi-Square statistical test revealed no statistical significance between after school programs preventing juvenile delinquency which does not support the researcher's hypothesis: That children involved in some form of supervised after school program are less likely to become involved in any delinquent activities.
