The After School Life Skills Program (ASLSP) instils life skills among vulnerable children through the medium of sports. The evaluation study aimed to build quantifiable evidence of the long-term impact of the life skill training on life outcomes of young people, measured in terms of their perceived Quality of Life (QOL). It was based on a quasi-experimental approach, drawing on a balanced sample with matched pairs of study and control group participants, to assess the difference in their perceived QoL. The study applied the internationally recognised WHOQOL-100 questionnaire and an internally developed ‘Prepared for Life’ tool. The study was conducted in urban Bangalore with alumni between the ages of 18 to 22 years, who had participated in the program at least four years ago.
