Our Mission: ZUMIX empowers young people to build successful futures for themselves, transforming lives and community through music, creative media, and technology.
Since 1991, ZUMIX has provided music & creative media programs for youth ages 7-18 in the Greater Boston area. We serve 1,000 young people annually through out-of-school programing, as well as in-school arts expansion initiatives. ZUMIX’s goal is to empower young people through music, and to foster personal and professional development, artistic growth, and civic engagement, as well as the 21st century skills needed to achieve success in college and career. For more information on our work, please visit www.zumix.org.
As ZUMIX prepares to celebrate our 30th anniversary, we look back with pride on three decades of great work, and look forward with optimism at all that lies ahead. We are investing in our Advancement team through expanding roles and responsibilities; we are increasing our commitment to serving our community, which was hard-hit during the pandemic; we are embarking on a new music partnership with the Boston Public Schools; and we are evolving with the changing needs of our constituents.
