Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to enable youth challenged by adverse circumstances to succeed and become productive, caring and responsible members of society. We provide an educational and fun alternative to risky behaviors like substance abuse, truancy, crime, and gangs.
GnG NCA operates an after school music and mentoring program for youth who otherwise cannot afford the opportunity. Our program teaches them about the benefits of a music education and music related career opportunities; and provides them the opportunity to learn how to play guitar.
At each service location, GnG operates both Beginner and Intermediate class sessions continuously throughout the school year.
Beginner classes address the fundamentals. Students learn about the instrument; how to care for it; how to tune it; how to strum; how to play simple melodies; and how to play the major chords. They are introduced to basic concepts of music theory and how to read music and they learn to play a few simple songs.
In our intermediate classes students learn more chords, strumming techniques and songs as well as more about reading music and music theory; they also have the opportunity to help teach/mentor new students entering the program.
