Kids In A New Groove

More Info:

Since 2009, Kids In A New Groove (KING) has provided a vital service to central Texas youth in foster care by furnishing them with musical instruments and facilitating weekly one-on-one music mentorship from Austin-area music educators. We at KING believe that music is a shelter in times of hardship, a tool of empowerment, and an unmatched means of expressing one’s truest self. Our mission is to make a lasting impact in the lives of youth in foster care by providing them with a consistent, encouraging relationship with an adult mentor and to instill in them the sense of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-determination that comes from learning to play a musical instrument.

  • “…fostering is about more than kids.  It's about caring for the biological family and having compassion for their circumstances.”


  • “We need people that are willing to go the extra mile. Just having someone that we can call and talk to when we are having a bad day or someone just to have as an emergency contact.”


  • “It's hard work but immensely rewarding. Fostering is the best thing I'm ever going to do in my life.”


  • “The growth that has happened in the six weeks we've had the kids is huge. It motivates us to keep going.”
