The Gift of Music

Jump Street created the Gift of Music program to combat the lack of resources available to schools and organizations to be able to provide music training to their students. Even with the resources available, many students cannot afford the cost of buying or renting an instrument to participate. This is where the Gift of Music comes in.

Since 2001, Gift of Music has collected and distributed hundreds of instruments in the Capital Region. Additionally, Jump Street has incubated the Gift of Music in three other cities: Philadelphia, Allentown and Lancaster. In all, the four sites have supplied thousands of instruments to youth throughout Pennsylvania.
