Mission: The Roots of Music empowers the youth of New Orleans through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique musical and cultural heritage of our city. Our goal is to provide our kids with the resources they need to lead positive, productive, self-reliant lives.

CONTEXT

Lack of access to after school programs, tutoring, and mentoring. New Orleans experiences a lack of opportunities and high crime.

TARGET

Kids age 9-14 from low-income households of the City of New Orleans


RESPONSE

Provide music education, academic support, and mentorship



OUTCOME

Almost 2,000 kids have gone through the program since its founding in 2007. Their grades go up a full grade; many go to college; almost none get involved with crime.
