Vital New Voices®

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

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

  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 community-based 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 metro area.
