Our mission statement: Music With A Message For Kids, Inc. is dedicated to bringing FREE educational and motivational music programs to kids in need at Elementary-Middle Schools, Libraries, Youth Organizations, and Military bases all over the U. S. We at Music With A Message For Kids, Inc. believe that the spirit of volunteerism and the desire to get involved in your community can and should begin at an early age. That is why we've dedicated ourselves to educating kids with the possibilities and inspiring this spirit and desire in kids at Elementary & Middle Schools, Public Libraries, and Youth Organizations (like Boys & Girls Clubs, Headstart Centers, Big Brothers-Big Sisters, etc.) all over the U.S. We accomplish this with our choices of educational-motivational interactive music programs with original songs and student participation on the subjects of Reading/Literacy, Character-anti bullying, Health/ Nutrition, and/or Leadership-self esteem, which we perform at venues mentioned previously. Music With A Message For Kids, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) Non Profit started in 2006 as a response to the need for educational and motivational programs in hurricane damaged New Orleans. We've since been back to that area 4 different times to encourage and motivate kids to get involved in helping their neighbors and in the rebuilding of their Community. In our brief 4 years of existence, we've already provided our service to well over 30,000 kids in over 100 Elementary-Middle Schools, Libraries, Youth Organizations and Military Bases in 6 different states, including Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana.
