After-school care program transforms Yongkang Community

文字-A A +A

In former years, Yongkang Community in Keelung City had serious problems with its teenagers. In 2004, Chief of Village, Yu Su-yun (余素雲), cleaned up the dirty and disorderly village hall and revamped it into a rudimental after-school care program, providing care and tutoring to local kids that habitually cut class. After establishing the program, Yu Su-yun raised 10 computers with LCD monitors and installed PC games; as long as the kids pledge not to break one cardinal rule – not to cut class – they are welcome to come and play the computers, instead of loafing about in Internet cafés. The results have been unexpectedly good. Nowadays, children obediently attend school each day and come to the program after school. In addition to playing computer games, the kids are also accompanied by local volunteer mothers who help them do schoolwork till nine at night.

In the past, the streets of Yongkang Community were a mess, earning it the nickname “Garbage Community”. As many of the residents are working class parents who are out trying to make a living most of the day, the children are often entrusted to grandparents and other elderly relatives. This has caused rebellious behavior in many children, who become addicted to Internet cafes, skip class and aimlessly wander the streets causing problems. Nowadays, during winter and summer vacations free classes are provided at the village hall from eight in the morning till five o'clock in the afternoon, ensuring that children in the community have someone to accompany them during the vacation. Community empowerment has not only improved the situation with juvenile delinquency, but also gradually made the community a friendlier place to live.

從安親班開始 永康社區改造計畫

基隆永康社區曾經有嚴重的青少年問題,永康里里長余素雲在2004年開始,把髒亂的里民會堂打掃乾淨,布置成簡易的安親班,開始照顧、輔導翹課的學生。成立之時,余素雲募來了十台液晶電腦,並安裝好遊戲,與流連網咖的孩子們約法三章,只要他們不翹課,就可以來這邊玩電腦。結果成效意外地好,每天孩子都乖乖地上學,放學再來安親班報到,除了玩電腦,也讓安親班的志工媽媽陪著唸書到晚上九點。

過去,永康社區由於環境髒亂,曾被叫做「垃圾社區」,由於社區居民多為勞工階層,父母外出打拼,只好將孩子托付給爺爺、奶奶等長輩照顧,有些叛逆的孩子沉溺網咖、翹課、四處遊蕩,社區內青少年問題層出不窮。現在,每年寒、暑假從早上八點到下午五點,里民活動中心有開設免費安親班,讓永康里中的小孩假期不孤單。社區營造的起步,不僅改善滋事少年的情況,也一步步讓社區變為更友善的居住地。
