About This Event
Music community-based arts programming is the perfect medium for implementing a youth-centered, youth-development approach to working with young people. And, building your music education program on the youth-development approach and philosophy is a powerful way to help young people develop strong identities, creative skills, and connections to their community. This one-hour introductory presentation introduces youth workers and music educators to ways of reinforcing the natural alignment between youth-development principles and strong arts-learning experiences. It is presented by Eryn Johnson and Laurie Jo Wallace, of the BEST Initiative/Health Resources in Action, trainers certified in the youth development approach and experienced teaching artists.
