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, Clark Street Elementary School), Seven Hills Charter School, Clark University, College of the Holy Cross, and WCMS. We care about creating strong partnerships with other organizations that serve our community. Other local partners include Main South Community Development Corp., Music Worcester, Center for Nonviolent Solutions, YWCA, and the Family Health Center of Worcester.
