Find Your Light Foundation: Creative Education Changes Lives

grobanseatedJosh Groban has long been committed to serving youth, and he uses the platform afforded him by his stellar music career to seek situations where kids don’t have a fair chance so he can help level the playing field. For years, his Josh Groban Foundation had a lot of passion but perhaps a skosh too little focus. They have dug in, grounded their mission, and relaunched as the Find Your Light Foundation, dedicated to enriching the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness.

I’m happy to talk your ear off about how creative education is everything, and a healthy dose of arts-based learning is the only sane way to proceed in the education system…and Mr. Groban clearly agrees. Creative expression changes lives, and Find Your Light is creating opportunities  for kids to discover they have talent the world is waiting to receive. Arts programs in multiple US and Canadian regions have been the beneficiaries of direct support from FYL: band instruments have been provided, arts academies strengthened, theater programs revitalized, visiting artists brought in to mentor and perform, multi-media work generated, plays and songs and stories and poems nurtured…basically, hearts and minds are invigorated everywhere they work. Because FYL is in the business of supporting existing community-based programs…surf around the website for a bit to find the great organizations they’ve been supporting, and volunteer opportunities among all this fiery creativity in a community near you.

  1. The Find Your Light Foundation developed out of Groban’s desire to streamline the charitable ventures of The Josh Groban Foundation. Instead of operating as an umbrella organization supporting a vast array of causes, the new foundation will focus entirely on supporting arts education efforts, providing instruments and funding for arts programs in schools and introducing children to the arts and culture around them and even around the world through the use of technology.
