Haven Kids Rock empowers underserved youth, who have been victims of trauma, abuse, homelessness or neglect, by introducing them to the musical arts. The program’s vision for the past 12 years is an environment in which every student has a therapeutic outlet by giving them access to technical skills that opens up otherwise unreachable educational and professional opportunities.
The students are encouraged to share their personal experiences through songwriting, singing, dancing, instrumental instructions and acting , all of which are provided through our program. Haven Kids Rock was created specifically for Mott Haven Academy in the South Bronx where two-thirds of all students are either in foster care, the child welfare system, while the final third live in the poorest Congressional district in the U.S.
