ChiMOP programs serve hundreds of children each year through high quality, time intensive, socially focused youth music offerings. Our el sistema youth orchestra school partnership at Mary Lyon Elementary School, city wide Summer Youth Orchestra, and satellite after-school string orchestras provide young Chicago students with instruments, instruction, and the opportunity to explore their potential as agents of social change.
When COVID turned the world upside down and many programs shut down, ChiMOP didn't hesitate to reach out to families and help children prepare to continue their musical pursuits at home. ChiMOP Online was launched on April 3 and has since provided sixty of our young musicians with daily content such as group coachings, private lessons, practice materials, and more. Now we need your help to continue this work throughout the summer.
ChiMOP Online Summer Camp will be even better thanks to the lessons we've learned this spring! We are excited to roll out many new features to make our online programming more interactive and fun. To maintain the level of high quality programming these Chicago youth deserve, we need your help.
Funds raised from this campaign will support training and professional development for our incredible staff of Teaching Artists to ensure we are all well equipped to handle the new technological challenges headed our way. Funds will also support additional staff time to give students more individual attention and cover growing costs of software and licenses necessary to reach our students.
On behalf of the entire ChiMOP family, thank you for your support!
