It's still summer, but the Boys & Girls Clubs are working to curb the trend of kids having nowhere to go during the after-school hours.
Statistics show that a third of all juvenile violent crimes happen between the hours of 3:00 and 7:00 p.m.
Part of the reason is that many parents are working during that time, and kids and teens don't have a supervised place to spend those hours.
The Boys & Girls Clubs are starting a nationwide initiative, the Great Futures Campaign to curb that trend for the upcoming school year.
They encourage parents to enroll their children into the program, which costs only $15.00.
