About Guitars Over Guns Organization
Guitars Over Guns aims to empower youth from Miami and Chicago's most vulnerable communities through a powerful combination of music education, public performance opportunities, and mentoring relationships. Our mentors are all local, professional musicians who are trained in Social Emotional Learning best practices designed to help youth overcome hardship, find their voice, and reach their potential as leaders. During the 2019-20 school year, our team of 55 mentors served nearly 1,000 students across 20 school- and community-based sites in Chicago and Miami.
