Fantastic news for our friends on the Adventure Sports Project!

A good friend of K.I.D.S. – The Adventure Sports Project in Rutland Street in Dublin 1 today got an early present for 2013.  Kindly sponsored by C&C the Musical Youth Foundation will establish musical education to the kids who use the ASP services.

The Adventure Sports Project (ASP) is located on  Rutland Street, Dublin 1 its target is the North East Inner City aged between 10 to 21 years by providing informal educational youth work programmes and activities designed to meet the needs of young people at risk in our target area. They achieve this through educational programmes, advocacy, information, interest based activities, training, drop ins, recreational activities, etc.

The Musical Youth Foundation, which was established in 2009, is working to provide every child on the island of Ireland with access to a musical education.

The generous donation will be used by the charity to establish a Music Education Partnership with the Adventure Sports Project on Rutland Street in Dublin. Local children will be given access to music lessons as part of the charity’s Guitars for Kids and Community Choir programmes

Michael Merrins of C&C said, “Having visited the Musical Youth Foundation and witnessed first hand the brilliant work of the organisers and volunteers, it’s an honour to be able to help and contribute in some small way.  C&C hopes that our donation will assist many more children in gaining a musical education. This is a wonderful charity that brings joy and new skills to hundreds of young people and we wish them well with the Guitars for Kids programme.”

Musical Youth Foundation Founder & CEO Chris Maher said: “This is a fantastic early Christmas present for the Musical Youth Foundation. The money will allow us to offer more young people in Dublin 1 access to a musical education and its many acknowledged benefits.”

The benefits of music education stretch way beyond the lessons, helping to build a child’s confidence, improve concentration and teach them the value of patience and perseverance. Aside from being a very satisfying hobby, music education is known to help improve a child’s performance in the classroom outside of music education itself.

We are delighted for the ASP and the MYF and look forward to working with the ASP in 2013
