Framework

The BYAEP Framework (PDF) is the product of the three-year collaboration among Boston-area youth arts organizations Raw Art Works, The Theater Offensive, Hyde Square Task Force, Medicine Wheel Productions and ZUMIX. The framework we collaboratively developed reflects the extensive research, development, and piloting we conducted over three years and provides the basis for the evaluation tools used in our organizations.

Our theory of change is represented in both diagrams. In the first diagram three intersecting circles, I Create, I Am, and We Connect, illustrate BYAEP’s outcome areas: Short-term— Builds Artistic, Problem-Solving and Expressive Skills, Strengthens Identity, and Develops Community; Intermediate—Able to Navigate, Able to Engage and Be Productive, and Able to Make Connections; and Long-term—Resiliency, Self-Efficacy and Personal Fulfillment, and Community Engagement.

The second diagram is our BYAEP Logic Model that describes in detail the inputs and the indicators of our outcomes.
