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

The Fellowship

The Youth on Record Fellowship program is an intensive and comprehensive 10-month program that is designed to bridge the gap between high school and either post-secondary school or a career. 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. 

Block Party
Block Party

Traditionally, YOR hosts a youth-led, youth-designed community block party in the La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood featuring musical performances from youth ages 11-24. The event brings together 500+ community members in a free, day-long family friendly festival where audiences hear original music and poetry from youth who have been engaged in YOR's year-long programming. Participants also receive community services and resources at the event. This is part of YOR's lease agreement with the Denver Housing Authority. 

MIC Class at Youth on Record
MIC Class

MIC Class is a training institute that YOR developed in partnership with Take Note Colorado to train Colorado musicians who are interested in further developing their skills so that they can lead classes and workshops in schools and youth facilities throughout the state. Now, Colorado's musicians who are interested in reaching and teaching Colorado's young people are acquiring the tangible skills that will prepare them to share their gifts in schools and youth-serving facilities (libraries, youth centers, hospitals, and treatment centers). Other training areas will include Musician Health & Community Safety, Trauma Support and Recovery, and Emerging Music Business. 

Youth Music Advisory Network
Youth Music Advisory Network

YOR is charged with the initial stage of developing a statewide youth music advisory network. The network will be developed and activated to empower youth statewide to guide music education activities to meet their interests and needs to maximize the impact of music education offerings. Program partners include Colorado Creative Industries and Take Note Colorado. 

*This is a special program of YOR - Special Programs are still in pilot, research and development phases. These programs aim to further meet the needs of young people in new and innovative ways.
