Neighborhood Strings brings high-quality music education and instruments to at-risk youth. The program is a collaboration between the Worcester Public Schools (Woodland Academy), Seven Hills Charter School, Clark University, College of the Holy Cross, and WCMS. We care about creating strong partnerships with other organizations who serve our community. Other local partners include Straight Up Cafe and Community Center, Music Worcester, Center for Nonviolent Solutions, YWCA, and the EcoTarium.
