The Guitars Not Guns program reaches out to our community's children who need our unique approach of mentoring with music to help them build their self-esteem and establish routine and goal setting practices while enjoying the experience of learning to play the guitar. The work we do reaches far beyond the youth we serve. We help create safer neighborhoods, cities and communities. We create a robust culture of musicians, artists, educators and citizens who are active participants in the creation of a better world for all of us.
