Kids Count Campaign 2023: Support Music Education

June 1, 2023

“That’s what music does. It brings people together.”
–Jaden, student at Hill-Freedman World Academy

Since 2004, we’ve brought millions of people together through music. It’s the core of our mission – to open doors to shared experiences that create connections, inspire learning, and celebrate who we all are.

You experience that every time you visit World Cafe Live. Will you help us bring those transformative experiences to kids across our city?

Each year, we serve thousands of Philly youth with our free music education programs – from our signature Bridge Sessions that welcome students to the venue for interactive performances, to community partnerships that provide unique music-making opportunities and meet kids where they are.

We know that music education is essential for developing skills such as creativity, collaboration, and communication; it encourages self-expression and sparks joy. Young people need that now more than ever.

We’re raising $60,000 in the next two weeks to continue and grow our music education programs. Can kids count on your support? Thank you!
