Mission or Broader Program Description:
Little Voices produces quality concerts for children in the foster care system and inner cities while providing internship opportunities with industry professionals. We use entertainment and media production as a platform to give voice to youth who lack adequate support and resources needed to thrive.
Through collaboration and collective impact, we strengthen the bonds of foster care partners and enhance social programs to meet the needs of youth.
Established in 2017, the mission of Little Voices is to inspire educate and empower fostered youth through music programs that promote youth engagement, cultivate self-esteem and develop community.
Little Voices helps pave the way for underprivileged youth to navigate the foster care system, overcome tragedies and trauma to realize their full life's potential.
Each student that attends receives the following benefits:
- Life changing concert programming
- Safe and positive environment
- Uplifting personalized message
After the concert we followup with smaller Listening Sessions events, bringing mentors and ambassadors into Youth Partner Organizations sites to enhance the quality of care for today's foster youth.
Little Voices concerts catalyze Youth Partner Organizations Initiatives. We help create awareness, advocate and allocate volunteer resources. Our goal is to help the social bottom line:
- Better performance in school
- Higher grades & graduation rates
- Lower teen pregnancy
- Less substance abuse
- Lower crime/incarceration
- When we bring in volenteers who are positive role models, who care, we see a 50% increase in building a childs self esteem and confidence based on basic interations, just a smile makes a secure and safe enviroment for our youth. We also find 80% of our volneteers become advocates for Little Voices and part of the Little Voices family. We all began as servants to the bigger cause.
