Hangouts provide a safe place for students
to meet with their friends, do homework and
have fun. It is a known fact that in a local
community, there is a need for young people
to have a positive environment to go to when
the school day ends. The local police have
said it significantly reduces the problems
of public loitering, theft and general
mischief for students without supervision.
"After-school hangouts" are proving to be a
great way to connect with local youth in the
communities and build community resiliency.
