The Engaging Adolescents Institute took place February 17, 2012, 9:00am - 4:30pm at the Music Center of Los Angeles County, Los Angeles, CA. For information on future institutes and upcoming professional development events we invite you to join our mailing list.
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:
* 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
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.

As part of the Engaging Adolescents Initiative the National Guild presented a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award Application Orientation Webinar on January 17, 2013. The slides from the webinar are now available to download for members only.
