Getting the Right Mix: Sustainability and Resource Development Strategies in Out-of-School Time Youth Arts Programs in Massachusetts
Proffitt, Christine
Afterschool Matters, n11 p7-14 Jun 2010
High-quality youth arts programs that take place outside the formal education system play a vital role in supporting the developmental needs and well-being of today's youth, particularly youth at risk of negative outcomes. Out-of-school time (OST) youth arts programs provide opportunities for youth to learn about themselves and their world while cultivating skills they may be unable to fully develop at home or at school. The research reported in this article focuses on understanding the strategies employed by OST youth arts programs in Massachusetts to promote financial sustainability and resource development.
