Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To provide an opportunity where all children--regardless of circumstances-- can thrive socially and academically through music education that promotes creative expression, teamwork, discipline and social responsibility.
Bay Area Music Project (BAMP) is an El Sistema-inspired after school music education program serving the social, emotional, cultural and academic needs of children. Alameda Music Project, the flagship chapter program, operates 5 days per week, providing on-site music instruction to over 100 children at Maya Lin School, an arts-integrated school in the socio-economically diverse West End of Alameda.
All students participating in BAMP receive tuition-free music instruction for at least 2 hours a week plus all necessary musical supplies (instruments, song books, etc), a nutritious snack and homework assistance . We provide children with musical instruction and performance experiences in a collaborative, orchestral environment that helps build confidence, compassion and teamwork. Children learn the importance of collaboration and cooperation in and outside the ensemble; they learn how to become one voice, and through their shared experience, grow stronger as individuals and as a community.
