CCNYPA University of Pennsylvania Netter Center VISTA
 
 
 
This VISTA project will increase access to and engagement in programs that support positive youth development (PYD). Quality out-of-school-time programs that promote PYD, like the ones facilitated by Netter Center UACS and Fab Youth Philly, have been shown to strengthen social, emotional, cognitive, and academic development, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe and supportive environment for youth. The positive impacts of out-of-school time programs are also indicators for K-12 success and post-secondary readiness by increasing likelihood of college degree attainment and higher earning potential. By connecting youth to programs where they can learn, grow, and thrive, and by encouraging them to be engaged in these meaningful experiences from cradle to career, we expect the project to have a marked impact on our youth and the broader community. https://youth.gov/youth-topics/afterschool-programs/benefits-youth-families-and-communities
