SLAM! Program Coordinator 

About SLAM! 
SLAM! Program Los Angeles, a project of Community Partners, engages a network of passionate college student volunteers to teach after-school music classes in underserved middle and high schools, filling the critical voids left by underfunded or nonexistent music programs. Through accessible, engaging, and tuition-free instruction, SLAM! develops instrumental skills, theoretical expertise, and musical camaraderie among young people. Our comprehensive program offers a variety of classes at each partner school, including Piano, Guitar, Percussion, Voice, and Rock Band, each enthusiastically implemented by a college volunteer instructor. 
Core Values 
Self-Esteem: The arts build community, which directly enhances students' self-esteem. Learning: Learning music is not a privilege, but a necessity for a well-rounded education. Access: Every student deserves access to quality and affordable music instruction. Musical Expression: Students need a voice that transcends language and dialect. We believe that a strong student-teacher relationship has the power to change lives.
