The Wallace Foundation has published a case study examining efforts to introduce high-quality after school art programs at Boys and Girls Clubs in the Midwest:
Wallace Foundation Case Study Examines Arts Programming at Boys and Girls Clubs
The study explores the efforts of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), a federation of more than 4,000 clubhouses around the country, in the first three years of Wallace’s Youth Arts Initiative. The initiative is based on Something to Say, a 2013 study of successful arts-focused organizations that identified 10 principles their programs appear to share. BGCA, the main grantee in the initiative, is working to determine whether a much larger, generalist organization can use Something to Say’s principles to establish high-quality arts programs of its own.
