I have recently linked up with with an amazing organization called Guitars Over Guns whose mission is to empower young people with music and mentorship; and they are currently hiring mentors!

We use music as a vehicle for building transformational mentoring relationships. Kids come for the music and stay for the family. We use the journey in music as an opportunity to create a safe space for students to explore their creativity, voice, identity, and power. They set goals and work through the challenges standing between them and their definition of success. We have concerts and a music video project where they put it all to work. GOGO sessions take place 2-3 per week week and pay $35/hour. Mentors are paid for prep time, training and field trips, too.
Consistency is essential to building real relationships, so we are looking for mentors
who can commit to the consistent schedule for the duration of the program year. Interested? Email Dominic at [email protected]
