Mission and Vision
SLAM! Program Los Angeles is a nonprofit, school-based program whose mission is to provide students from underserved schools with accessible, contemporary and tuition-free music instruction. Our program is delivered through a network of volunteer college students, creating opportunities for mentorship and professional development through a shared experience of music.
- Self-Esteem: The arts build community, which directly enhances students' self-esteem.
- Learning: Learning music is not a privilege, but a necessity for a well-rounded education.
- Access: Every student deserves access to quality and affordable music instruction.
- Musical Expression: Students need a voice that transcends language and dialect.
We believe that a strong student-teacher relationship has the power to change lives.
