  • Brief Description: Heart of the City Music Program is a University of Alberta student group that offers piano and guitar lessons to underprivileged youth in and around the inner city. Our volunteers are paired up with music teachers and students from schools in and around the inner city to teach students piano and/or guitar. Our desire is to share music and foster a sense of self-pride and self-courage in our city's youth, as well as provide a mentorship to these youth. For more details, please visit our website at http://www.ualberta.ca/~hcpp/, or to volunteer, fill out our online form at http://goo.gl/forms/hOm0xGXNbT.

Volunteers will teach 1-3 students from grades 1-6 (and possibly beyond) for a set time of one hour per week, and are expected to have a balance between valuable musical education and fun when teaching. Music resources will be provided at our on-campus office, which features a large selection of music books with various levels and genres. 

As of Winter 2016, we are kicking off our pilot Saturday Guitar Program at the Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre, and we hope to see interest from volunteers who may have less time during the week and prefer to teach on Saturday instead. 

Thank you for your time!

A bit of history...

AYV (Alberta's YouthVOLUNTEER! Society) was started in 2006 by some awesome peeps not unlike yourselves. They were looking to volunteer but couldn't find any information on how to do it. Being go getters they decided that Alberta needed an organization just for youth to help us find our own information and opportunities!  AYV is an organization run by youth for youth!
