Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Music Changing Lives provides a fully equipped, state-of-the-art, recording studio utilized to teach our youth the basics of recording and producing quality music. Our mission is, “To teach our participants they can live beyond their current reality.” Parents are looking for a place to take their children to play and learn in a safe, enriching environment. They realize that to leave their children unsupervised and without vision is to court disaster. The myriad of components in our program allow children to be actively involved in something positive and productive each day after school, thereby allowing their parents to be sufficed knowing their child is secure and thriving while they are at work. In turn, the parent has a reduced stress level and increased productivity, as well as reduced absenteeism on the job. This results in a win-win situation for children, parents, employers, and communities.

Results: MCL has proven it’s a result driven organization focused on fine arts as an incentive program. Not only have we completed our first compellation album, we also have plans of hosting our first art gallery within just six months of having a physical location to service our youth.  At our community center located in Redlands, CA.  Most importantly, 40% of our students have improved their grade point average by an average of 1 point, significantly improving their chances of graduation.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 300 or more

My experience with MCL was nothing short of amazing. They donated so much supplies and time to my first back to school event. Extremely nice, caring, and respectful! I can not wait to do more with them in the future! Thank you so much MCL! You really take care of the community!

Excellent organization. Founder, Josiah, is doing a great job for the youth in our communities. My daughter participated in the first annual MCL Showcase and it was a great experience for her. The event was well organized and provided an excellent platform for the students of Vista Del Lago High School to showcase their musical/vocal talents. A much needed program in a time when youth are being tempted by gangs, human trafficking, and other things that would otherwise negatively impact/influence them.
