Mission Statement

Global Youth Groove is a 501(c) 3 Boston-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of youth and children in Kenya by providing them with an opportunity to develop their musical abilities.


Global Youth Groove enhances and broadens the musical abilities of the youth. Currently, the organization has a community center in Kakamega, Western Kenya. This space enables the youth to develop their musical talents by giving them access to music instruction, various musical instruments and music technology. Global Youth Groove also provides a platform for Kenyan musicians and young musicians from the U.S who have a passion for philanthropy, to give back to underprivileged communities. The musicians work both one on one and collaboratively with students in order to provide them with the adequate training necessary in enhancing their music skills.

Our goal is to empower the youth in such a way that it enables them to play instruments both individually and in an ensemble setup. They will also be able to design and work on self-selected music projects using both western and traditional musical instruments. We believe that the program will not only help the youth nurture their talents but it will also give them a platform to express themselves in ways that they could not previously do. In addition to personal development, they will be able to acquire soft skills such as communication, teamwork and leadership. Our studio will provide the community with industry-standard equipment and software on which they can record and produce their music. Our volunteers from the states will teach the students and local artists how to digitize their songs so they can be distributed online using social media and other online music stores, such as iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby amongst others.
