Program Requirements & Evaluation Consent Form


The Youth Arts Corps provides quality arts education experiences for youth. But the Youth Arts Corps is much more than an arts education program. The mission of the Corps is to utilize the ne arts to help youth realize their potential. We are foremost a positive youth development program that recognizes and capitalizes on the many benets the study of the arts oer youth. Such benets include opportunities for self expression, increased understanding of ones own and others culture, increased academic performance, association with positive adults and peers, opportunities to learn and practice critical job skills, appreciation for all art forms, increased understanding of self and others, development of critical thinking skills and learning teamwork. The major funder of our after-school programs, Coordinated Child Care of Pinellas (CCC), requires us to evaluate the impact our program has on youth to ensure that the programs they fund make a meaningful dierence. Additionally, the Corps is dedicated to improving our programming to help youth reach their potential and uses the following formal evaluation tools: Healthy Kids Survey (HKS), a research-based tool that evaluates our youths internal and external assets. Research shows that youth who have a high number of internal and external assets (positive adult and peer relationships, access to quality after-school activities, feelings of adequacy, parental support, and age-appropriate challenges) are much more likely to be healthy, productive, and well adjusted adults capable of realizing their potential. The survey is given at intake, annually, and when the youth leaves the program. Program Satisfaction Surveys, given twice each year.
