The mission of the Guitars not Guns Music Program is to help prevent violence in schools and on the streets by providing foster kids and at-risk youth with focus and self-actualization. We aim to empower kids with the most fundamental tool they need to succeed:
Believe in yourself and you can accomplish anything
Using music as a catalyst, we encourage children and teens to use their creativity to foster personal development and to help divert themselves from self-destructive indulgences such as drugs, alcohol, and gang related activities. By providing free guitars and lessons we hope to engage their creative potential and help them follow their dreams.
