Evaluation of a Neighborhood Settlement House After-School Program.
Davenport, Robert L.; Cotler, Sheldon
An urban, federally funded after-school program for children ages 6-13 was evaluated. Program children were compared to control children with respect to social skills, self-esteem, school achievement, and congruence between parent and child ratings. Multivariate statistical analyses indicated that program children surpassed controls in all but the social skills area. Length of time in the program as significantly related to increases in self-esteem and congruence of parent-child ratings. Control parents gave significantly more favorable ratings on the dependent variables than the program parents. Ratings of control parents were also significantly less congruent with their children's self-ratings than were ratings of program parents. (Author)
