A seven-year study of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme shows the after-school program has improved the academic and personal outlook for the hundreds of children taking part, many of whom are at risk.
The California Lutheran University study, released Wednesday, was designed to quantify the impact the program has in the region as the club searches for money to implement new programs for low-income students.
According to the study's author, Jamshid Damooei, chairman of the economics, finance and accounting department at CLU, every $1 invested in Ventura County youths has a return of $12 for the community.
