a 2-hour music class for youth involved in the justice system
ASTEP on STAGE! partners with NYC organizations serving youth affected by the justice system, incarceration, gun violence, homelessness, immigration status, systemic poverty, and HIV/AIDS.
Through one- to two-hour workshops, ASTEP on STAGE! strives to provide exposure and access to the arts for roughly 1,000 youth throughout NYC, regardless of their background. $52 funds a two-hour music class for justice-involved youth that will show them they have what it takes to succeed no matter the obstacles, which is key to breaking cycles of intergenerational poverty.
