Outreach Programs

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Ethos is a statewide organization providing the academic and behavioral benefits of music education to 7,000 kids annually, regardless of their socioeconomic status or geographic location. Music Corps provides music programming at schools and community centers in the Portland area. Our partnership with AmeriCorps, the Rural Outreach Program embeds music instructors in rural parts of the state where kids and community members have limited access to music education. Pass The Mic is a free music education program for immigrant youth ages 14 and older. The program provides youth with high-quality and culturally responsive music education and mentorship by experienced Portland musicians.
