Measurement of the success/effectiveness of this project?
The 24/7 Wall Street news site reported in June of 2017 Lubbock was one of the poorest cities in the US, with a Poverty rate of 22.4% well above the 15.9% statewide poverty rate and 14.7% nationwide poverty rate. The typical household in Lubbock, Texas earns only $45,551 a year, about $10,000 less than the median income across the state.
We adapted our program to help meet the needs of our population, creating an emergency needs-based aid program. We examined the application rate, and consider the increased rate of applications for needs-based aid for the program a successful marker of reaching people with the message that YOL does not turn a student away who can perform the music for inability to pay.
