Young Musicians of the World (Jeunes musiciens du monde) is a non-profit organization working with young people from needy villages and neighbourhoods in Quebec and abroad. Partners with Jeunesse du Monde (Youth of the World), our mission is to open and operate high-quality schools around the world that teach the traditional music of their own country in each location. In these privileged learning places, the goal is to give children and teenagers a chance to express their full creative potential, by offering them an excellent education for free.
Young Musicians of the World - now in India and Quebec – was founded with the conviction that a better world is possible.
Since the inception of the project, the aim of Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya has been to help children from humble backgrounds to create a brighter future, groom high quality musicians and contribute to the conservation and diffusion of the India’s vast musical heritage.
Today, the school provides food, shelter, health care, clothing, as well as musical and academic education to about a hundred boys and girls, all free of cost. The organization has been more than greatly encouraged by the high level of interest, enthusiasm and talent for music and other skills demonstrated by these keen young students.
After setting up a music school in India in September 2002, Young Musicians of the World decided to get involved with the young people of Quebec city. Thus, a school of traditional music opened last fall 2003 in the Patro-Laval buildings located in the St-Sauveur district in the lower-city of Quebec. In 2005, a third project in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district appeared.
