Currently there are 300 young people enrolled and more than 1600 who have engaged with the program in the past. Indirect beneficiaries include the students' families, their peers and members of their network. University students and others benefit from their volunteer work with Devio Arts through tutoring and mentoring programs. Devio Arts Center also has a partnership with Google through their volunteering program ''Google Reach'' which benefits both volunteers and children attending the program through mentorship and knowledge sharing. By December 2015, the program aims to engage an additional 800 young people, their families and friends, work with 18 volunteers (12 Google employees and 6 university students), support 12 public schools and engage about 30 creative arts teachers. The program is also in the process of working on the third edition of an annual children's festival in creative and digital arts.
