Mission Statement

 

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.

C.A.P.O. PROGRAMS

FRESH-TRACKS_LOGO_white_1920.png

Fresh Tracks is a 12-week music and film production workshop held at our C.A.P.O. (Community Arts Programming & Outreach) Center in Hollywood, CA that assists student artists in creating songs from inception to professional release via digital platforms. Artists work with AHJNetwork instructors from JGD-USA, Street Poets, Inc. and Give A Beat to individually create and record songs from their personal experiences as well as work collaboratively on one group track. Participants also received instruction in preparing the non-musical prerequisites of any professional release, including hands-on experience in creating video, photo, bio and digital art assets. We bring innovative strategies to arts education classes that lead to positive outcomes for the system-impacted and under-resourced youth we collectively serve. Several youths from our pilot program have graduated and are now transitioning into teaching roles for the next phase of FRESH TRACKS!
