Lima, Allen County -
Some alarming facts: youth crime rates and risky behaviors spike after school, between 4 and 7 PM. Kids that are involved in even one organized activity rarely appear in court.
Allen County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Derryberry used these to hold a community and faith-based summit with other community officials. The activities have a wide range, sports, choir, 4h or even a chess club. Some of the needs they hope to address are staffing, funding and facilities for available programs.
They hope to attract kids to positive activities and give them a strong set of goals and role modeling.
