Designing for Engagement: The Benefits of High-Quality Arts Programming for Tweens - Webinar
Arts learning programs that intentionally integrate creative skill-building and expression with positive youth development principles fuel young people’s imaginations, strengthen their leadership, and build critical learning and life skills. A newly released Wallace Foundation report, Designing for Engagement: The Experiences of Tweens in the Boys & Girls Clubs Youth Arts Initiative, finds tween participants who participated in programs of this kind within general youth-serving organizations improved not only artistic skill, but also social-emotional learning, and had increased club attendance and retention. Register to participate in a free webinar, on February 20, 2019 from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm, hosted by the National Guild for Community Arts Education to learn how to deepen arts learning practices to attract youth and create measurable benefits.
