Ron Bradford of the University Area Community Development Corporationís (UACDC) Prodigy cultural arts program addressed Florida State Legislators during the Hillsborough County Legislative Delegation Meeting Dec. 2. The meeting was held at the University of South Floridaís Marshall Student Center.

Bradford explained to the delegation how Prodigy, funded by the Department of Juvenile Justice, delivers life skills such as communication, problem-solving and conflict resolution through performing and visual arts curriculum for at-risk youth ages 7-17. The program prevents youth from going deeper into the juvenile justice system, which in turn saves the state money, improves communities and truly transforms young lives.

Prodigy served 1,375 Hillsborough County, FL youth in the 2012-2013 grant year. The eight Prodigy locations in Hillsborough County include University Area Community Development Center, CDC of Tampa, Bible Truth Ministries, Florida Institute for Community Studies, Inc., Jackson Springs Recreation Center, South Shore Art Council-Big Draw Studio, South County Family Support and Resource Center and Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay in Brandon. Classes such as visual arts, dance, drums, keyboard and music production provide a meaningful activity after school and on Saturdays.

Prodigy reached 3,204 youth in the recent grant year through a seven-county region, which includes Hillsborough, Manatee, Sarasota, Polk, Pasco, Pinellas and Orange. Dollar for dollar, Prodigy is one of the lowest costs per youth programs in the state of Florida and has an 89 percent non-recidivism rate.

Members of the Hillsborough County Legislative Delegation include Senators Jeff Brandes, Bill Galvano, Arthenia Joyner, Tom Lee and John Legg, as well as Representatives Janet Cruz, James Danish, Mark Grant, Jake Raburn, Dan Raulerson, Betty Reed, Darryl Rouson, Ross Spano and Dana Young.
