Founded in 2021, Jail Guitar Doors’ C.A.P.O. (Community Arts Programming & Outreach) Center exists to offer creative alternatives to vulnerable, under-resourced populations through music and arts education and activities. Our programs empower system-impacted and justice involved youth to develop their talents and capacities; disrupt systemic root causes of inequality, poverty, and racism; and advocate for families and communities impacted by the carceral system. We provide a supportive, creative community and work toward pathways to meaningful employment for these young people and recently returned residents.
"We have crafted a facility where young people will, with training and guidance, find alternatives to negative life decisions"
Wayne Kramer - JGD USA Executive Director
