Mission: Mission Statement: to create for our children, through music, an environment free from violence. Vision Statement: By developing specific musical programs we will provide our children with alternatives to the cycle of poverty and hopelessness that so often leads to violence. We involve the general community in these musical programs through free concerts at schools, parks and other institutions in various neighborhoods throughout Miami-Dade. Disadvantaged children, typically low income and/or disabled, receive free individual music education and participate in full orchestra concerts. ACOP is based on an internationally acclaimed format proven to increase academics, cognitive skills and self-esteem.
Results: We support hundreds of youth and families a year in one on one mentoring, music instruction and parenting relationships.
Target demographics: Children facing adversity in underprivileged communities ages 4- 18
Direct beneficiaries per year: 2,000
Programs: We teach children technique in keyboards, drums, violin and vocal instruction in addition to offer parental involvement and mentoring to encourage the children. Research confirms that children's lives can be changed dramatically through family, group and one to one mentoring relationships. Investment in this program is an investment in helping children grow up successfully and overcome environmental challenges.
