Youth Development Through Music

Youth Development Through Music unifies a longstanding community of practice that intentionally integrates the arts, humanities, and sciences with youth development principles, sparking young people’s creativity and building critical learning and life skills.

The Phoenix Conservatory of Music believes in the power of Youth Development Through Music. It is an intentional part of PCM’s College Prep Program where we:

  • Provide a safe and healthy space for youth to spend their time
  • Realize that young people come into their experiences with their own strengths
  • Foster the development of positive relationships and social skills
  • Rely on the direction and involvement of youth leaders to help shape the program
  • Set high expectations for goals, learning, perseverance and resiliance
  • Create connections between the art and craft they are honing and the broader world around them, giving them the power and space to communicate, collaborate, innovate, and motivate.
