Music & Youth partners with successful youth development organizations who want to provide a high impact, sustainable music program for their teens. We focus our resources on nonprofit organizations that serve economically underserved youth.
Music Clubhouse Program
Partners that create and sustain a Music Clubhouse or Studio Clubhouse adhere to a set of guidelines that define the size and design of their music facility, equipment, staffing, and programming. Music & Youth provides these organizations with multi-year matching grants to help them establish their program. We also provide an equipment grant to help defray part of the initial start-up costs. Clubhouse partners make a substantial strategic commitment to sustain the program beyond the Music & Youth funding period. Music & Youth makes a firm commitment to deliver programming support to all our partners on an ongoing basis, to support their ability to have a positive impact on the youth they serve.
