transcenDANCE Youth Arts Project
transcenDANCE is a nationally-recognized creative youth development organization that works with teens in underserved San Diego communities. Our programs change the trajectory of students’ lives by building resilience, confidence, and creativity and by instilling life-changing skills such as leadership, collaboration, and community engagement.
transcenDANCE measures our impact using the PEAR (Program in Education, After School, and Resiliency) assessment tools developed at Harvard to monitor student progress and success. This quantitative data validates the work that transcenDANCE is doing to keep youth in school and help them pursue college, seek leadership positions, and pursue careers.
