Music + Mentorship: Transforming lives of Youth in Foster Care

Our Mission

Kids in a New Groove (KING) provides youth in foster care in Central Texas with a committed one-on-one mentoring relationship through private music instruction, which gives students the ability to build concrete strategies for life-long success.

About us

Since 2009, KING has empowered over 450 youth with music.

Kids in a New Groove (KING) provides youth in foster care with consistent mentorship through the delivery of free, in-home music lessons. Children in foster care are a highly vulnerable and underserved population. Having undergone emotional, sexual, or physical abuse, the children’s lives are traumatic before they even enter foster care. Our music mentors and their students build a lasting relationship of support which helps our students succeed academically, emotionally and socially. KING equips youth in care with concrete tools to show the world and, more importantly, youth themselves what they can accomplish with passion and dedication.
