After-school programs are designed to help
students grow academically and socially.
Programs often include homework
assistance, healthy snacks, sports, art,
music, and field trips. Program goals are to
provide reliable and safe after-school
supervision, increase academic enrichment,
and manage behavioral problems,
particularly for low-income students and
minority groups.
Logan City understands the
importance of such programs and their role
in the community. In order to further
improve the quality of services provided,
the Logan City After-School Program (ASP)
requested, through CBI, that USU develop
and administer a questionnaire to assess
ASP worker’s cultural competency.
Results from this assessment were used to
identify areas in which ASP workers can be
better trained and prepared to respond to
diverse student needs.
This project was divided into three
phases and integrated into three courses
over three semesters, so that each phase
could build on previous progress. Phase 1
concluded in the Summer of 2015. Dr.
Jessica Lucero’s MSW 6595 students
designed the cultural competency
questionnaire and prepared the IRB
protocol. Dr. Jennifer Roark’s MSW 6800
students took on Phase 2 of this project in
the Fall. Three students carried out a
statistical analysis of results and compiled a
stakeholder’s report (page 27) with
recommendations to provide a cultural
competency training to all ASP workers.
Dr. Sonia Manuel Dupont’s Cultural and
Linguistic Diversity in Communicative
Disorders class is now (Spring 2016) taking
on the third phase of this project. Her
students are developing training materials
to be used by ASP for cultural competency
training purposes.
