RAA Director Peter Walden and RAA Founder Xavier Eikerenkoetter began offering services to incarcerated youth in Los Angeles county probation camps in 2007. Today the work of RAA continues to expand throughout LA county.
As a member of the Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network (AIYN), RAA has collaborated with other arts education non-profits to attain contracts with the probation department with the intention of making arts education a foundational aspect of probation camp programming.
