Kids in a New Groove

Kids in a New Groove provides “mentorship through Music” to children and teens in the foster care system in Central Texas. Kids in a New Groove seeks to enrich foster children’s lives through committed one-on-one mentoring relationships that are built and sustained through weekly private music instruction, giving students the ability to build concrete strategies for life-long success. Kids in a New Groove believes that music provides foster youth an outlet for self-expression and helps reduce the foster-care to prison pipeline.
