A successful way to reach youth in your neighborhoodby Jane Brite and Marlene Jaglinski
Art after School
This guide is based on over 13 years of real-life experience with after-school art programs for primarily disadvantaged youth in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. ART After School was written as an inspiration and guide to develop and/or incorporate arts programming into after-school programs for children and teenagers, especially those considered to be at-risk. (170 pp.)Why art? The arts provide another dimension to help reinforce academics, teach problem solving techniques and inspire creativity while giving kids a chance to have fun and just be kids.ART After School is a blueprint on how to integrate arts programming into an on-going after-school program.ART After School shows how to take after-school activities beyond the walls of the program by illustrating how to involve neighbors, businesses and schools from kindergartens through universities. By involving all segments of the community, an after-school program presents children with rich and dynamic experiences to bridge businesses, community leaders and college students from a variety of disciplines to families who would otherwise have no access to these opportunities.ART After School gives concrete suggestions and pitfalls to avoid when writing grants as well as other fundraising ideas to help a program operate with a balance of funding sources.
