PowerPoint presentation slides and tables of our conference paper. This paper/poster will present the results of an evaluation of the dynamical effects of an out-of-school-time program. In the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, an out-of-school-time program, known as 'Houston's Kids' or HK, was developed and implemented with the intention of addressing the needs of displaced and other at-risk children and youth in a single community. The outcomes evaluation that was designed to assess HK examined changes in developmental assets and values (www.searchInstitute.org) among the 625 individual kindergarten through high school children/youth program participants. True panels of data that tracked changes in the same individual participants over a school year were employed as were data on a sample of control or 'comparison subjects.' This design and these data afforded in-depth understanding of the dynamics of assets and values development over time in response to specific HK program elements and among participants with different social characteristics.
