National Study Confirms Benefits of Social Circus
Posted March 16, 2018
National study shows positive impact of circus programming on youth at risk.

Youth in social circus programs across the US are making big leaps in the skills they need to lead productive lives, according to a recently completed study commissioned by the American Youth Circus Organization and conducted by the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality.

Each social xircus program in the study is a member of the AYCO Social Circus Network. Each program is carefully designed to meet the needs of participants and seeks to improve the social and emotional skills that youth need to thrive as adults: knowledge and awareness of emotions, the ability to manage emotions in behavior, the ability to seek help and to help others, and the ability to set and work towards goals.
