The programs must fall into one or more of the focus areas:

1) Art Therapy

Programs using formal therapy programs, with licensed arts therapists, to support the individual and social growth of children experiencing mental or physical traumas. Therapy program may incorporate any arts medium including, but not limited to music to dance to visual arts to performance. There is an understanding that these programs may reach fewer youth. Therefore, it is imperative that these applicants clearly demonstrate long-term care and outcomes for youth.

2) Arts Education

Programs using the arts in or out of school to support the individual, interpersonal, academic, vocational or civic outcomes for youth. These programs focus highly on the process to create rather than the ultimate product, although the arts products resulting from these programs are often of high quality. Often these programs hinge on the employment of teaching artists and other professional with arts, education and youth development expertise.

3) Arts for Social Change

Programs using the arts as a mechanism by which youth are contributing to community development, social change and/or social justice efforts. The focus of these programs is often multifaceted with outcomes at the community level as well as the individual youth level. Youth engaged in these programs often demonstrated increased competencies in leadership, civic engagement and social awareness.
