We grab teen’s attention through our ambasador musicians and leave them with a message of HOPE. Schools are offered a full-day program that revolves around a 45-minute assembly. The assembly instantly builds credibility with its audience. After the assembly, the ambasador musicians visit students in class, at lunch and during the remainder of the day. This vetted process successfully crystallizes our core messages.
But our program is so much more than just an assembly. We work with roughly 150 to 200 students to make this program happen. Each schools stage crew works the day before the assembly to prepare and set up. During the assembly the band, choir and orchestra all participate. This is a great opportunity to focus on each schools music programs and the result has been higher enrollment in those programs. Also during the assembly we work with the yearbook, journalism and photography classes. We find that by involving as many students as possible it creates ownership and that ownership creates an infectious pride and enthusiasm that spreads throughout the school. After the assembly our musicians spend the remainder of the day in classrooms, reinforcing our core messages and working with students on a more one-on-one level.
