Since 2008, YOR has been bringing Colorado’s most respected and talented musicians into high schools and youth residential treatment centers. Credited as the most utilized music provider for Denver Public Schools, our intensive, out-of-school-time activates, for-credit music classes, advanced technical training, and the positive mentorships offered by our musician-instructors are empowering young people in Denver’s most vulnerable communities to graduate and develop the skills needed to enter the workforce or pursue a post-secondary education.

Each month, YOR Fellows participate in personal, professional and artistic development programming, designed to help them set and achieve goals for their next stage of life.

These once-in-a-lifetime musical experiences will not only bring relevant and compelling artists to the Colorado community, but will give Youth on Record students the opportunity to learn all aspects of the recording arts. Annual recordings will be released on a compilation album, with proceeds from the sales benefiting Youth on Record’s music programs for underserved, local teens.
