ABOUT KIDS IN A NEW GROOVE – Kids in a New Groove is a non-profit that provides free, one-on-one music mentorship to children in the Texas foster care system. Currently, Kids in a New Groove is serving children in Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, and Houston. They offer weekly meetings with mentors who provide lessons in areas such as voice, guitar, piano, and drums, which the children choose from. Along with mentor guidance and music lessons, the children also have an opportunity to receive a brand new instrument, which they can earn from meeting program goals. The program’s mission is to build solid foundations for youth in foster care so they can age out of care with the tools for success.
