Get Jose to Berklee this Summer!

Donation protected
Jose Hernandez is a teenager from the inner city of Miami, FL.  He's an aspiring musician, writer and producer, and he is very fortunate to have been selected as a partial scholarship recipient to the 2015, 5-week Summer Performance Program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston this summer.   Berklee is generous enough to pay for over $5,000 for the tuition but Jose has to cover the cost of housing and he needs some money to live for 5-weeks.  Jose's family cannot afford to pay for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, so that's why his extended family at The Motivational Edge and others are helping to raise the money!

This 5-week life-changing experience will give Jose the opportunity to learn from world-class faculty at Berklee as well as from visiting artists from over 70 countries.  He will learn music theory and get to study performance, musicianship and ensemble playing in state-of-the-art facilities and bring all of that knowledge back to his friends at The Motivational Edge. 

___________________________________________________________________________________The funds are being raised by The Motivational Edge, a Miami based 501(c)(3) youth development agency that utilizes culturally relevant arts as a motivational platform to inspire youth toward academic achievement, increased self-confidence and the building of essential life skills.   We are very proud that Jose has been selected to attend Berklee's Summer Performance Program and we thank our amazing partners, Berklee College of Music and Berklee City Music Network for providing him with this opportunity.  

Thank you in advance for your support.
