In 2010, the Arts Infusion Initiative, a model for social change that aimed to connect detained youth and those at risk for incarceration to rigorous and engaging arts instruction, was launched with the support of the Chicago Community Trust. The 2015 evaluation report examines the extent to which the program met its stated goals, and finds that, in general, the model created significant, positive developments for young people involved.
