Today, MPP David Piccini announced on behalf of the Government of Ontario that six local organizations will receive over $555,000 in funding to rebuild and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We at SONG are thrilled to be one of the recipients of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund.
“Sounds of the Next Generation (SONG) is a fun, free, open-access social development and leadership program that teaches life-long skills to kids in Northumberland County and engages thousands of community members. We help children and youth overcome barriers and find their voices using an easy-to-understand model found in every culture around the world – music.
Thanks to the support of the Government of Ontario, through the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund, we will expand our programming by 20% and engage youth with our new SONGtech program online – teaching tech skills, music-making and composition, and as always, connecting and empowering young people in ways that matter more than ever in today’s world.”
Trish Dryden, President and Board Chair, Sounds of the Next Generation
