Project Title:

Mentoring through Music

Project Description:   

Kids in a New Groove (KING) provides Central Texas youth in foster care with free music lessons through mentorship. KING seeks to improve the challenging statistics for youth aging out of foster care, where many children face homelessness or incarceration due to lack of community resources. For the past five years, 100% of Kids In A New Groove students have graduated high school, compared to less than 50% nationwide. 


KING will use this grant to prioritize recruitment and retention of students and music mentors in the Austin area to ensure continued success of current programming.
