Los Angeles, CA

Registration for the National Guild's Engaging Adolescents Institute is now open. This full-day training seminar is designed to help community arts education providers increase teen participation in high-quality arts education programs. The Institute will be presented from 9:00am - 4:30pm on Friday, February 17, 2012, at the Music Center of Los Angeles County.

The  registration deadline is February 10, 2012. Space is limited. Register online now.

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:

    * The purposes and goals of arts education for adolescents
    * Key tasks of adolescent development
    * The conditions necessary to maximize youth participation
    * Model programs
    * Effective methods of engagement

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 (PDF). 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.
