Vital New Voices®

…is an initiative that engages the innate creativity of young people to take on some of the challenges they see in the world.

The fundamental framework for Vital New Voices® encompasses five core principles:

  1. Active engagement of youth.

  2. Accommodation for the full scope of artistic genres.

  3. Thematic focus on social issues, challenges, and trends.

  4. Collaboration with partner organizations.

  5. Impact evaluation based on a Social Activator Model of Change

Using this framework, TGIAL has established pilot programs for Vital New Voices® in New Haven, Connecticut and Atlanta, Georgia
