Mission Statement

Empowered youth who use music to make strong positive change in their lives, their communities, and the world.

Description

As soon as you walk in the door at ZUMIX, you'll hear our sound. A Hip-Hop band rehearsing, a young student practicing piano scales, or a group of teens swapping stories about their lives as they prepare to write their first songs.

ZUMIX programs inspire young people to explore the arts, particularly music, as a means of self-expression.

One of the liveliest organizations in Boston, ZUMIX offers year-round programs in songwriting, live performance, instrumental instruction, music technology and Radio (ZUMIX 1630AM)

ZUMIX is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) cultural organization dedicated to building community through the arts. Located in East Boston, [A1] MA, ZUMIX provides top-quality cultural programming as an alternative way for young people to deal with frustration, anger and fear, and as a method of building cultural understanding and acceptance in one of Boston's most diverse neighborhoods.

Our work is based on the involvement and empowerment of racially and ethnically diverse, low-income, at-risk youth both as program participants and as an integral part of our organization. Our programs primarily involve youth ages 8-18. We serve a mixture of 42% Latino/a (both Central American and Caribbean); 30% White (largely Italian); 20% Black (including African-American, Haitian and Jamaican), and 8% Asian (Cambodian, Vietnamese and Chinese) youth
