Everyone Deserves a Chance (EDAC) is a youth and young adult focused, 501c(3) non-profit organization that provides education in digital music production. We aim to empower individuals one person and one project at a time through high quality crafted EDAC music workshops and music education programs.
Since the launch of our program in 2015, Everyone Deserves a Chance has used the power of music education to help impact at-risk-youth and young adults with our workshops & music production/DJ programs. We provide an outlet that allows individuals to explore the culture and unity that music brings to communities
As our program expanded, we found ourselves helping children/youth with disabilities/illnesses that really benefit from utilizing music as a tool for a type of therapy that can provide hope, inspiration and much needed happiness back into the lives of individuals. Through our initiative Change The World We Live In and our crafted EDAC music workshops, we help individuals to heal/feel/smile/change while utilizing music to stimulate the mind and creativity that resides within us all.
Music education boosts cognition, improves memory, fosters creativity, increases multicultural awareness and builds confidence. Within a month, many of our students will begin completing their own full-fledged music tracks, which we proudly showcase on our social media outlets. By providing our students with a platform to share their work, we grant them the opportunity to become part of the global music collective, where other producers are able to offer their own positive feedback and encouragement. This support system helps to establish a sense of belonging, and further motivates our aspiring producers to continue pursuing their goals.
We strive to bring back music programs to facilities throughout the country while providing a place for our youth to obtain as a creative outlet, place of belonging, to develop and grow. We invite you to join Everyone Deserves A Chance; your support will help to continue our programs and fulfill our mission. To Learn more about how you can help, email: email@example.com
