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 Guild's new publication, Engaging Adolescents: Building Youth Participation in the Arts, describes methods of integrating youth development and arts education practice to build programs that help teens accomplish key developmental tasks, exercise creativity and imagination, and build work and life skills.
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:
During our day together, 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.
