The Quantum replication in St. Petersburg is working with both Gibbs High School and St. Petersburg High School to provide services to 30 youth. With youth most at risk of being involved in problem behaviors during the after-school hours, the youth of St. Petersburg are particularly at risk, because school begins early and concludes at 1:00 PM, giving the youth an extra two hours of high risk time.

The most diverse of all current Eisenhower Foundation supported Quantum programs, the Associates of the program are being exposed to many opportunities from which youth of low income communities are often excluded, such as the Dali Museum.

Academic remediation and enrichment continues through the summer, with the use of the eXtralearning system.
