Youth On Record roared through January, continuing to teach in Devereux Cleo Wallace, and beginning classes with the Shiloh House, Littleton, and Savio House, Denver. We could not be more excited and look forward to a prosperous sophomore year- meaning, of course, that we continue to inspire students to make music that express what they are feeling inside themselves.
We have begun to work closely with the Flobots.org and have lots of exciting things on the drawing board. By working with many of Denver's dedicated artists and teachers, our explicit intention is to inspire students to become artists, and in turn, contributing members of our society.
During the break, Youth On Record has formalized our lesson plans, instituted new, professional level, software, established assessment tools by which to gauge our student's progress, re-focused our fund-raising efforts, all the while maintaining our full-time jobs and obligations to the students. Most exciting, however, is the our acquiring of our tenth laptop, thereby fulfilling a promise to the Savio House student's to return to their campus, which we had to cut short, in 2010, due to the incapability of their computers to function according to the demands of our software. 2011 has thus proven to be a monumental success and we look forward to each day and the potential fruits that dedication to positive change can bear.
Thank you to all the students who dedicated themselves to understanding something new in 2010, and to our partners and contributors who helped make this a reality! Together we are defining the future of our world.
