Project PEP; an Evaluation of the Summer Program for Disadvantaged Students Held at Skidmore College.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
In the summer of 1967 an eight-week session entitled Programs to Excite Potential (Project PEP) was held at Skidmore College in Saratoga, New York for approximately 150 disadvantaged urban junior high school students. These students were drawn from ten urban areas throughout the state. The criteria upon which the participants were chosen were underachievement, disadvantaged background, and some sign of interest or ability in one or more of the performing or creative arts as evidenced by creative artistic or verbal expression....The data presented in this report indicate that change for the better in attitude and behavior did indeed take place during the period of participation in Project PEP.
