May 18, 2011

The Guild's latest publication, Engaging Adolescents: Building Youth Participation in the Arts--available free online--explores how to increase youth participation in the arts by infusing youth development practices into out-of-school time arts education programs. Learn how to engage teens by developing new programs or enhancing the effectiveness of existing ones.

"This timely guide presents national models and practical advice for developing and sustaining arts programs for teens that foster youth development and build transferrable life skills.  Informed by an expert group of practitioners and scholars, it's a must-read for anyone working with teens."

- Traci Slater-Rigaud, Director, National Youth Arts Program Awards, President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities

Engaging Adolescents was made possible by support from the NAMM Foundation.
