From October 2008 until July 2009 we researched, discussed, sought feedback, and landed on the following collective youth arts outcomes--outlining a way to see the complex progress in our youth.

One 14-year-old participant spoke to all three outcomes in his recent quote written in his Final 2009 Evaluation at RAW, “Before I came to RAW, I felt shy and nervous and angry.  Now I feel creative and like I have a future and like I belong somewhere.  I don’t want to leave because RAW makes me feel better about myself.”
