New Stories, New Songs, New Stars……!
Haven Kids Rock is a music program that was created for at-risk kids in the New York City child welfare and foster care systems. Rock guitarist Jimi K Bones and musician and casting director Nefertiti Jones founded Haven Kids Rock in 2008 to provide children with a creative/enriching/therapeutic outlet. The weekly music program resides within Mott Haven Academy Charter School in the South Bronx and shares a close partnership with The New York Foundling, one of the city’s largest and most respected social service agencies.
Participation in Haven Kids Rock Music Program presents a unique opportunity for Haven Academy scholars. The students who participate do not typically have regular access to enrichment opportunities outside of the school environment. As an extension of the school day, Haven Kids Rock provides a therapeutic environment by giving scholars a chance for self-expression through music, acting and dance.
