Why did Youth on Record choose to suspend in-person programming at the Youth Media Studio?

YOR is closing our Youth Media Studio because we love our youth, and we want to continue to do all we can to care for our beloved community.

COVID19 presents a lot of unknowns. But what we do know is that limiting contact with people is one way we all can prevent the spread of the virus.

Like with any public health event, it is often our most vulnerable who are disproportionately  impacted. Youth on Record takes the needs of these community members very seriously, and intends to do everything we can to support, protect, and defend people who may be overlooked, underserved, and under resourced at this time. Helping to prevent the spread of COVID19 is one way we can do that.

I want to continue to donate to Youth on Record. How will my donation be used at this time?

First, it’s important to note that any contributions to YOR at this time will be used for essential programs and services only. We will make the most of all funds received, and will ensure that we are the best stewards of the funds you contribute. 

Youth on Record will continue providing services, only now our services will be offered digitally. Your donation will support YOR’s amazing staff of artists as they lesson plan, record their workshops, and engage online with students.

Further, YOR supports the well-being of every child by providing resources for their emotional and mental wellness needs. Now more than ever, young people need to feel safe, encouraged, and even inspired. Our team will remain in daily contact with our students. Your contributions will support these efforts.

Further, there is a chance that YOR will need to purchase essential equipment in order to provide our services digitally. Some contributions will support these purchases.

I’m a music fan and a music lover. How can I stay connected to the local music community right now?

There are many ways to stay connected to the local music community while maning safe social distancing.
