Youth on Record
Youth on Record empowers Colorado’s under served youth to achieve their academic, artistic, and personal best by employing local, professional artists as their educators.
The mission of Youth on Record is to empower Colorado’s underserved youth to achieve their academic, artistic, and personal best by employing local, professional artists as their educators, and its vision is for youth to discover how their voice and value can create a better world. Through the use of innovative, effective and engaging music and audio production programming, YOR aims to have a positive, long-term impact on the youth in its programs. YOR works with youth – many of whom live in poverty and/or have experienced childhood trauma – and uses arts-education as its foundation because “Arts programming — be it music, theater, or visual arts — helps erase that sense of loneliness and provides a platform for building the kind of resilience all of us, but especially young people who have struggled with [adverse childhood experiences] ACEs, need.”
