With recent events in the news of kids falling through the cracks and being found murdered. With kids in rural communities being murdered in small communities, the pain of the parents, the cries for change! 
I took some time to really go deeper into what Sound Lab Manitoba provides to rural communities.
Its not just about music.
Its about the NEEDS of kids in RURAL communities. Kids who are stranded at home.
Kids who have nothing to do. Kids who have nowhere to go. Kids who need something positive to do.
When I think about what this space represents beyond me teaching music and mindfulness,  or the desire to make space available to small RURAL communities, there is only one MISSION. To get kids out of their basements, to keep kids out of trouble, to provide a quality of life and socializing that are not currently available to them because of their physical location. To get kids off the streets. To keep kids out of boredom
I am calling out to people who support music, learning, outreach for underserved small communities in rural areas of Manitoba. I am asking those people to donate who want to see kids succeed and have safe space to be a positive part of change.
 I want to share that space with the many youth who need somewhere to be something to do and create futures for them beyond the confines of small town living.
This is about creating safe spaces for people.
I have met a lot of like minded and driven people who I want to help to create this safe space. To create a life worth living for disadvantaged youth. I WANT to have an active unlimited by time studio where people can come to make art, play music and have access to wellness services and gain skills and confidence needed to prepare youth for the workforce.
Sound Lab encourages creativity and expression. Specifically in music.
The outreach work that can be done above and beyond this is limited by money and availability of space.
This safe shared space will provide drop in for community youth to have a safe space and provide them with healthy options.
Your donation will help to fund and get the centre up and running. This can be made possible with your help!
Currently parents are driving upwards of 60 minutes a day to take their child to a 1 hour program outside of their communities.  These are the fortunate kids.
There are currently 450 youth who dont have direct access to local services
Sound Lab Manitoba will be able to cover a wide variety of musical programming from this location. Art, wellness and recreation will have an opportunity to provide services here.
Creating new partnerships and aligning myself with community leaders who have the same vision.
This is about making sure that WE as adults are presenting the best options to those who need it most! Kids. They truly need all the positive guidance needed. Help me work within these small communities to bring something unique and awesome! Thank you so much.
