Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the New York African Chorus Ensemble Inc. is to preserve, native African art forms that serve as a continuum to the historical and classical traditions of Africa through performances, publications, research, and training, in order to facilitate greater understanding and peaceful coexistence between the people of Africa and the World. In addition, the organization is focused on sensitizing the general public to the plight of the sick in hospitals, nursing homes, and places of special care.
New York African Chorus Ensemble Inc is a multiracial, and multicultural organization that contributes to the improvement of the quality of life of the elderly, mentally, physically and economically challenged, youth, adult and the poor.
We believe that an illness should not excude anyone from benefiting from the healing effects of music, to this end we organize in house performances at hospitals, nursing homes and places of special care. Most of these places do not have enough funding for enrichment programs.
We know that families in low income communities may not be able to afford the admission fees to view professional concerts. Therefore, we organize concerts at low income communities and involve the residents.
We provide a safe space for "struggling musicians, where they are mentored, trained in the art of musical performance and given a stipend for performing for disadvantage and low income people. We want to encourage musicians to continue to make meaningful contributions to society without resorting to immoral activities in order to practice their art.
We chose to specialize in African music because of its intrinsic healing properties and to create a niche for ourself as a company and to give our participating musicians additional marketable skills.
Our youth program keeps our children off the streets.
