This project will provide a community musical training for children and youngsters for one year, in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Music, a safe space and community development activities will transform their realities and help them build a culture of peace.
Violence, drug trafficking, family disintegration, social alienation and poverty, are some of the social problems that children and teens live every day in Mexico. Furthermore, they don't have access to other social programs to engage them in supportive, enriching activities. In these conditions, children and teens are vulnerable to get involved in activities that can harm them and their communities.
In our experience, music is a powerful medium for positive social change for our youth. We will offer the youngsters a space of belonging that will also help shield them from negative influences. We will accept children ages 7 through 18 years old. They could build a different path for themselves, promote teamwork, respect for others, discipline and love.
Young population`s involvement in our musical communities will help them build resilience and make them active and engaged citizens. Simultaneously, their families will also be transformed, audiences will understand the music from a different perspective, and the community will change. We are confident that, in the long term, these musical communities will thrive. We expect to reach more than 4,000 youngsters in ten years from now.
