The context of this qualitative case study is Project YES, an afterschool gang prevention program at the Thurgood Marshall Middle School in Lynn, MA. The purpose of the case study is to explore the implicit and explicit understanding of Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) by identifying the presence or absence of five elements of growth fostering relationships as defined by RCT. Structured in-depth interviewing of two distinct adult stakeholder groups generated data for analysis.
