ABOUT THE co-FOUNDERS

 

The Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network (AIYN) provides structure and coordination for the collaborative work of community-based arts education organizations serving youth in the Los Angeles County juvenile justice system. AIYN envisions a future where youth are empowered and the systems that serve them are transformed by centering arts as a healing strategy, and as a way to build the wellbeing of young people and their communities. AIYN serves justice-impacted youth in the Los Angeles County, leveraging the reach and expertise of its members to amplify impact, provide thought leadership for the field, and serve as a model for effective collaboration.


Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) produces an extraordinary range of music education and social impact programs each season that extend far outside the physical walls of our concert halls. These programs reach over half a million people in New York City, across the US, and around the globe each year. WMI is driven by a belief in the power of every individual’s creative capacity and aims to inspire discovery and encourage personal growth in all its programs.
