How can we effect immediate social change, right now, today? The answer is simple: by supporting YPI's Young Musicians Program which offers a hands-on, inclusive and effective music education program for low-income and learning different children in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Music is PROVEN to boost confidence, increase focus, decrease social friction and lead to higher education and a better chance in life. For the past 16 years YPI has provided low income and learning different aspiring young musicians with a free musical instrument, individual lessons, weekly band classes and extraordinary public performance opportunities. By actively seeking a widely diverse socio-economic enrollment we create, each week, as safe, inclusive and stimulating venue where kids can get to know one another while working cooperatively towards the thrill of a public concert. The results are stunning. Learning difficulties evaporate. Lifelong friends are made across racial lines. Disparate local communities come together in cooperation and good will to support these young musicians as they bring joy to the wider world through their enthusiasm for music and the pride they take in their performance.
We know that there are many worthy institutions competing for your tax-deductible dollars, but we have seen that YPI is a pro-active choice that offers both immediate impact and far-reaching positive results. Please donate generously and help us help the very children who need us most, and know that you, too, are making a change in the world for the better, right now.
