Fordham University (Be the Evidence Project)
New York, NY
To support a study of the impact of arts programming on the social skills and mental health outcomes of at-risk youth. Data will be examined from two Florida programs that served youth who had been arrested or had received multiple suspensions from school. By comparing outcomes in youth who participated in arts programs with outcomes in youth who did not, this project will help fulfill a critical knowledge gap that may have consequences for youth intervention programs and greater public policy concerning at-risk populations.
