Kids In a New Groove

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.
