After-School Programs - Proposition 49

Location California
Organization Partnership for Prevention, UCLA School of Public Health, with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

The Health Impact Assessment (HIA) Project, a joint endeavor of the Partnership for Prevention and the UCLA School of Public Health, conducted this HIA on a state legislative proposal to expand funding for after-school programs. The HIA found several potential health benefits that could occur through improving educational outcomes; through reductions in violence and injury risk because youth would be in a safer, more controlled environment after school; and reductions in certain health risks, such as drug and alcohol use, if the curricula in these programs included health education topics. The HIA concluded, however, that the potential benefits of the bill would be much greater if it targeted high-risk youth.
