Toronto-band-Mar-cropFrom the Toronto CDSB: Many young students dream of becoming a rock star and Music! Not Mischiefallows them to experience the possibility. This innovative music program engages young people in guitar lessons. The program is delivered by officers from the Toronto Police Services 14 Division. Every week on Wednesday morning, the officers come together with a selected group of young students to “jam” with them. The idea behind the program is to link police officers with at-risk youth to help them understand and deconstruct their life challenges through the universal language of music. In May, three students will represent St. Mary’s Catholic Secondary School in Toronto at a rock concert, held at the school and backed up by rock band Tracenine.
