Music Center of Los Angeles County, Los Angeles, CA

Sponsored by NAMM Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and Marcled Foundation
High-quality arts education programs can address adolescents' developmental needs by supporting the acquisition of artistic and life skills, positive self-image, and a sense of belonging. Yet recent research by the National Guild indicates that many arts education providers are challenged to sustain teens' involvement in robust out-of-school time programs.
The Engaging Adolescents Institute will illuminate how you can increase teen participation by revealing what teens want, what they need, how to engage them, and how to sustain their involvement in the arts. Join top youth arts leaders from across the country as we explore:
Read biographies of faculty and youth coaches
During the institute, we'll examine case studies of remarkable youth arts education programs that produce extraordinary results for teens, organizations, and communities. Come prepared to contribute to the dialogue and get ready to roll up your sleeves to develop an action plan for your organization.
The Institute curriculum is derived in large part from the Guild's recently released Engaging Adolescents: Building Youth Participation in the Arts. This guide has been designed and published as an e-book and is available free online. We encourage you to review it prior to attending the Institute.
