The No Repeats Project
Music Mentor Program
The No Repeats Project is a 501(c) (3) organization. No Repeats is a student led music mentor program for teens who are incarcerated. We recruit advanced high school musicians with a desire to share their love of music. Austin’s Violin Shop generously donates instruments for our lessons.
We envision that the musical exposure and experience will have positive effects on the teens, educationally, socially, and psychologically. Using the transformative power of music, we hope to aid the youth centers in their mission of reducing a teen's risk of returning to the criminal justice system. Simultaneously, our musicians develop communication and leadership skills and gain an understanding of the lives of teens in the criminal justice system.
The No Repeats Project's mentors also love to perform for the center and arrange for the teens to attend musical events inside and outside the facility.
If you are interested, please contact Nicholas Boettcher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
