Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Success of this project will be partly measured by the number of students recruited to be a part of the project with a goal of 15 direct participants who will attend 80% of the scheduled classes. The class, as measured by the Youth Quality Program Assessment, will meet an average school of at least three across the different domains of the scale. The success of the project will be measured both by numbers engaged and the quality of the class that produces the class. Attendance and registration will be recorded by our online youth programs software and Minneapolis Community Education observes quality through the Youth Program Quality Assessment.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Wellstone now boasts a beautiful, large scale, painted mural was created in a main stairwell. More than 100 staff and students attended the dedication, helping students feel proud of their work and claim ownership of their school as well as their artistic ability to create a mural. The Wellstone Community at large is activated in their school space and feel a greater sense of permanence.
