Regardless of socioeconomic status and race, music continues to be a universal language by which we communicate while mentorship supports emotional well-being and increases resilience. It’s difficult to imagine missing music and mentorship due to inequalities and lack of access. Musical Empowerment has partnered with Google Fiber, Wake Forest University, and Oak Foundation to address the digital divide facing students in need.

Corporate, Institutional and Foundational support has helped Musical Empowerment bridge the gaps in technology by providing access to online learning for each and every one of our families. From laptops, to high-speed internet connectivity, to teacher training and virtual resources, this collaboration will have a lasting impact on 
our pairs and provide countless opportunities in the future.
2020 Chapter Leadership Summit 
Board Members greeting student leaders at the Annual Leadership Summit 
16 of our chapter leaders (representing 7 schools) joined our annual Leadership Summit on August 1st & 2nd! These dedicated volunteers regularly demonstrate true dedication and creativity as we navigate this new landscape of online learning.

This year's Leadership Summit took place virtually and along with online teacher training, we also explored leadership skills and the power of mentorship & resilience. Alexa Broderick from The Equity Paradigm delivered an inspiring presentation regarding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Board members joined a morning call for some 'coffee talk' and offered advice for our college volunteers.

The weekend was wrapped up with a screening of  "The Science of Resilience" - sponsored by our partners at SafeChild NC.
