KIDS SENT TO
Hi! We’re the Boredomfighters, The Nonprofit Modernizing Music Education.
We’re on a mission to #helpkidsmakebeats and empower disadvantaged youth to manifest sustainable futures in music.
Kids are bored and unengaged
For ages, people in rural and underserved communities across the nation have been waking up bored and seeking their purpose.
Children are being molded along an assembly line into young adults who graduate high school with no clue that they could spend their life creatively and generating purpose in their community.
A lack of relevant music education in school systems
Music education is stuck in the analog age and getting cut from school budgets. Teachers are scrambling to get young people re-engaged in the classroom post-COVID.
Uninspired kids gravitate towards dangerous coping mechanisms
We’ve seen firsthand the dangers of young people being disengaged at school and disconnected from their peers, and we believe that boredom is at the root of these dangerous coping mechanisms from involvement with gangs and drugs to a downward spiral of mental health issues.
Create pathways for expression and purpose
We’ve dedicated ourselves to creating new pathways for creative expression & purpose for underserved communities.
Help kids make beats by providing workshops, camps, and mentorships
We do this providing workshops, camps, mentorships, and access to studio equipment wherever it’s needed most.
Fight boredom and reduce barriers to careers in music
This helps kids become engaged in learning and aware of their potential to create music and community events. Thus, fighting boredom… and empowering them to create sustainable futures for themselves doing something they love.
It all started when a group of musicians, festival throwers, and educators decided to set up an immersive music studio called “The Instrument Garden” in the campgrounds at music festivals.
One day the group was invited to bring the Garden to a school and everything changed….
"I immediately felt safe to explore what was always just a dream. That day I realized again that music is my heart's calling. I'll never forget my first time in the Instrument Garden"
