The main objective of the present study is to explore the long-term impact of a structured after-school arts program on the psychosocial functioning of youth residing in low-income, multicultural, and Aboriginal communities in five sites across Canada. The proposed study will conduct a follow-up of 183 (between 30-35 youth per site) participants, now 14-20 years of age, 4 ½ years after the end of the after-school arts programs. Phase II of the study will be developed and implemented in collaboration with the five original sites that delivered the arts program in Montreal, Toronto, Tillsonburg, Manitoba, and Vancouver.
