The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Empowering youth to create positive change in the world through music.
In addition to weekly ensemble band classes, private instruction, songwriting workshops and community performances, three times a year Plugged In students perform in benefit concerts that raise money for causes and organizations chosen by the students themselves. Plugged In provides a nurturing and supportive community to which young musicians feel a sense of belonging, an opportunity to express and be acknowledged for their musical interests and a chance to use their music to help others around the world. Plugged In is based in Needham with students coming from cities and towns throughout Massachusetts. We offer scholarship assistance to anyone who needs it - never turning anyone away who can't afford tuition. We currently have over 110 students in over 30 bands.
