“I Create, I Am, and We  Connect.”

For over three years the Boston Youth Arts Evaluation Project (BYAEP) has worked on developing the framework and tools to effectively measure the three main outcome areas characteristic of youth arts programs. These areas relate to  artistic expression (I Create), identity (I Am), and community (We Connect).  The result of 1000’s of hours of research, discussions, experimentation, and analysis of results can be found in this downloadable 168-page Handbook and Workbook. We welcome other youth arts organization to use our framework, adapt our tools, and track, articulate, and improve their own youth development outcome areas.
