In 2017, SANCA participated in the first evidence-based, national study looking at the socio-emotional benefits of Social Circus on young people in the United States.
Organized by the American Youth Circus Organization (AYCO) and the Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality, the study collected thousands of data points over nine months, with information that includes participating youth reporting on their own lives, program staff observations of youth behavior, and external program quality assessments.
We are proud to spread the news of the announcement of the publishing of the report. This is a major step in understanding the powerful impact that Social Circus has on the lives of young people across the country.
