Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesota children who are able to participate in the theater arts increases through increased enrollment of 10%. Evaluation will occur through tracking enrollment numbers throughout the summer and comparing to previous years, a participant questionnaire, and by sending out a follow-up survey to the communities we serve.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We noticed an increase of 70 total children enrolled in our program this year. This did not quite reach our goal of 10% increase. We did provide a questionnaire to our town contacts in order to collect information on numbers and quality of experience. Our grant allowed us greater access to quality clinicians, I believe that this is the first year that every single clinician was of this caliber and a clear response was seen in the kids participating in our camps this year.
