The Issue: Youth Band Needs Musical Instruments

Sasha Bruce Youthwork founded its go-go band, called Forgiving All My Enemies (FAME), as an afterschool program in response to youth demand. The band meets three times a week to practice and teaches the youth about music and band management to help develop their interests in music. However, the band currently uses instruments that are too old and worn to work properly and need replacement.

The Campaign: Purchasing Musical Instruments for Youth

If this Grassroots campaign raises $1,000, then Sasha Bruce Youthwork can purchase newer secondhand instruments and promotional materials for its youth go-go band. $1,000 will purchase two guitars, power and bass amplifiers, conga, snare, and bass drums, cymbals, a microphone, and a keyboard. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding GED, ACT, and SAT preparation books for members of the youth band. Through the go-go band, Sasha Bruce Youthwork aims to create a safe space for participants to play and express themselves. It also helps them grow by connecting them to GED programs, college testing, and transitional housing.
