Participants of the Orchestra for the Youth of Sweepfire speak up
Capstone Project (B.A.) Liberal Studies Department
The Orchestra for the Youth of Sweepfire (OYS), an out-of-school-time (OST) program, expressed desire for more data originating from their participants. Interviews were conducted with ten 4th-grade participants of OYS. Their responses will bolster OYSâ€™ effectiveness by providing insight into the program's experience as seen through the participants' personal reflections, narratives, and experiences. This research is important to the goals, objectives, and sustainability of the OYS program.
