On a recent Thursday afternoon, more than 20 young people filled the cafeteria at The Intersection, a First Ward youth center that hosts an after-school program for children and teenagers. At about 5:30 p.m., after dinner, most of the children headed for the Intersection’s auditorium for an hour of play.
