Every young adult deserves the opportunity to explore a passion and develop the life skills they need to reach their full potential. Share the Spotlight is tuition-free so that we may reach motivated musicians who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a music program. It is funded entirely through donations. Your donations will give students the opportunity to have a fantastic summer improving their musicianship, playing in a band, and performing in a final show.

Share the Spotlight utilizes performance-based music to bolster the confidence and potential of middle and high school students in New York City and Philadelphia. Our two month summer season fills in a time of the year when students are often left without constructive activities. The Share the Spotlight experience is proven to develop students’ self-esteem and make a positive impact on school performance. Studying music involves communication, creativity, and cooperation with others. Our program’s goal is to use music as the platform to help our rock stars ultimately become stronger students, college and job applicants, and most importantly, engaged, confident, and outspoken individuals.

Since our founding in 2014, hundreds of students from all over New York City and Philadelphia have auditioned for the program. Each year we select up to 40 deserving young musicians who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a tuition-based summer program.

A gift of $350 sponsors a student for the entire summer. If we reach our fundraising goal, we can empower talented young people from New York to Philadelphia with the life-changing summer they deserve.

Share the Spotlight inc. is incorporated in the state of New York as a Not-for-Profit corporation and has a tax-free status under section 501(c)(3). Your generous contributions in 2017 will be tax deductible.
