- Mission: Kids in a New Groove provides Texas youth in foster care with a committed one-on-one mentoring relationship through weekly private music instruction, giving students the ability to build concrete strategies for life-long success.
- Details: Kids in a New Groove's vision is that all Texas youth in foster care have the tools and support they need to become successful individuals when they transition out of the foster care system.
As an organization, KING pairs music teachers with youth in foster care for one on one music instruction. The idea is to give youth a boost in self esteem through gaining experience and skill building that comes with learning how to play an instrument. Music has long been thought to have healing effects on people and combining the mastery of a skill with a positive mentoring teaching relationship can be a powerful way to reach out to this group of youth.
