Guitars Over Guns
Guitars Over Guns empowers youth from disadvantaged backgrounds with a powerful combination of music education and mentoring from professional musicians to help them overcome hardship, find their voice, and reach their potential as leaders. The organization provides comprehensive training to mentors who, in turn, support mental health and develop long term relationships with program participants. In addition to sharing their love of music, they are role models for these students. Based in south Florida, Guitars over Guns partners with public schools in Miami and Chicago, augmenting these schools’ existing music programs.
