Fundraisers

All money collected from our fundraisers goes directly to running our ReMiX Urban Arts & Wellness programs. We are currently running 1-on-1 Music (DJ/MC) and Wellness Mentorship sessions at CYOC, as well as group workshops that facilitate up to 16 Youth with 3 Instructors.

The workshops and lessons all contain Wellness activities such as meditation, breathing exercises, or visualizations that the Youth can apply in their daily life to manage stress, anxiety, and mental health. This also prepares them emotionally for their release. The Music activities include DJing, Scratching, MC/Rapping, Song writing, and poetry. The Youth are matched with the best Instructor for them, and they work together weekly to achieve their music and wellness goals. This program will be expanded into a long-term mentorship program where instructors continue to work with Youth weekly after their release, with the support of their wrap-around transition team.

Having consistent weekly sessions encourages Youth to create long-term goals for themselves and having a mentor who can meet them on their level leads to them actually achieving their goals. Youth who attend ReMiX programs also gain access to the Entrepreneurial Training program offered by our partner charity, Legacy Children’s Foundation, as well as other programs that we offer, including Summer Day Camps, Workshops, and Retreats.

This program and mentorship truly benefits youth who have often been lost in the system and carry a lot of trauma with them. It provides Youth with stability and teaches them consistency, goal-setting, leadership skills, mental health and wellness skills, improves communication skills, increases their self-esteem positive influence for life decisions, guidance to discover passions and safe space to practice, and a positive outlet for emotions.
