A recent study showed kids in Milwaukee get into the most trouble in the hours right after school.
Milwaukee's Center for Youth Engagement created an app for kids called Beyond the Bell.
The goal is to get young people to have access to high quality after school programs.
"What better way to do that is to create an app that has all those organizations listed so that young people don't have to figure out where is it that they want to go, it's at the touch of their fingertips," said Sharlene Moore, the director of Urban Underground.
Beyond the Bell is free to download in the app store.
