Crime rates and insecurity in most parts of the world have been attributed to the rising cases of children leaving school without proper activities to engage in. In instances where children are not actively engaged after school, there are high chances of getting involved in activities that are not good. Such activities that are common to ‘idle’ children are involved in anti-ethical practices and behaviors for example drugs and substance abuse and enrolment into criminal gangs. Nevertheless, there are some factors that inhibit the successful adoption and implementation of after school programs.These factors include funding, maintenance of qualified, the in availability of space as well as the varying perceptions of individual parents within a society (Larner, 32-33). When school going children are done with schooling or are in the transition from one stage of learning into another such as from high school studies and before they enroll into tertiary learning programs, there is always a tendency of them to engage in other things that may not be really ethical or moral. Moreover, the tendency for children to engage in criminal gangs may be heightened by the prevalence of poverty within an area. They usually take the responsibility of providing security and even material needs for their families. However, enrolment into criminal gangs for the children after school does not provide the solution as assumed but rather heightens the cases of insecurity and poverty.
