Mentoring Through Music

This collaborative pilot project spearheaded by the FSO and the Juvenile Court system of Coconino County mirrors the aspirations of El Sistema to use music as a change agent for youth. Our program uses symphony attendance to help at-risk youth build and strengthen social skills and self esteem, encouraging the likelihood of their success with education, employment & personal growth.
