David Lee: The M.U.S.I.C Club

David Lee (UCSB): $2,000.00 for The M.U.S.I.C Club (Undergraduate Arts Grant)

The MUSIC Club is a volunteer organization based out of UCSB whose mission is to provide children the opportunity to receive mentorship from college students via free tutoring and music lessons.  Specifically, they focus on children grades four through six who would benefit most from mentorship by a college student.  They target elementary schools where over 50% of the children are eligible for the Free and Reduced Lunch Programs by coming from families that are 185% below the poverty line.  Their organization also seeks to connect the elementary schools featuring professional artists, and by holding several concerts annually where local musicians perform as opening acts for the headlining artists.
