SHARE THE LOVE
Sharing the Soul of Music though mentorship, performance and philanthropy.
We utilize mentors to provide a positive experience that will help instill perseverance into each student and bring appreciation for the arts.
“This foundation is something Andy has always wanted to do. He grew up in Watsonville, so he knew that a lot of teens did not have the funding to study music and art. Andy wanted to help out.”
from the Pajaronian News in Watsonville, CA
Andy Vargas Foundation’s mission is to inspire, educate and mentor underserved youth who strive for a career in the music industry. The AVF achieves its mission by providing youth access to musical instruments and music education classes; music writing and publishing courses; and financial support to continue a higher education in the field of music and arts.
One of the primary goals of AVF is to collaborate with national and international industry brands; associations, local music programs and organizations, and top musicians and industry professionals to mentor and help develop cutting-edge music education programs for our students.
AVF offers free program opportunities to youth and young adults ages 8 to 22 with music programs and opportunities that may one day lead to a career in the music industry.
