Exciting Updates on the Impact of Love Learning Music

We are proud to announce that the Love Learning Music After School Program is having life-changing impact on children who have special needs and/or have suffered trauma.  Three of our teams have been working hard on developing curriculum, trauma healing tools and training, and volunteering with students.  
 

We have a new Love Learning Music Curriculum Team Coordinator, our very own, Megan Gibson has graciously accepted this position to help forward the development of our After School Program! 

 

Our International Director, Jean-Pierre Leroy has stepped up into the After School Program Director position.  To better love the children, Jean-Pierre has been serving as a teacher at Robson Academy, the partner school where we are growing our After School Program.

 

The LLM Web Development Team has been working hard on developing our new Love Learning Music online portal.  Soon, we will be able to onboard volunteers and staff very easily.  In the future, we will use the portal for parents and students to access resources, schedule sessions, and get support for child development!  

 

To better serve our students, Love Learning Music has gifted tablets for every student at Robson Academy! A special thank you to all of our sponsors and partners! 

 

Love Learning Music has provided ten musical instruments so students
can continuously learn and reach their potential in life!

 

The Love Learning Music Mentorship program is continuing strong through covid times.  Whether we meet on zoom or in-person we are safely helping kids to overcome the trials they face and develop well!

What If!?

Love Learning Music After School Program & Founding Partners Team

What if, when you were a child, you suffered from trauma caused by life experiences?  What if, when you were a child, success in school was nearly impossible because you had some special needs that made school and overall development difficult? 

 

Most likely, you have had some obstacles in the development of your life.  So you understand the Love Learning Music After School Program goal:  for all youth to overcome the trials they face, Love Learning Music uses fine arts to educate, equip, and encourage underserved children. 
 

We have seen amazing impact for the children at Robson Academy, the school we are partnering with to grow our After School Program!  After 20 classes, there is unanimous approval and anticipation for more classes!  A few children were not so fond of dancing, but that’s natural and our program incorporates general music, fine arts, physical education, and a focus on overcoming trauma and special needs. 

The children have been asking for more classes every day!  In May we provided exciting classes every Friday to teach songwriting, dance, and most importantly how to use fine arts, and behavior regulation strategies to overcome trials in life! 
 

Love Learning Music is putting forth a unified effort to provide a complete After School Program this upcoming Fall semester.  While the Curriculum Team works hard on adding lesson plans and activities, and the Trauma Healing Team develops tools and trainings for children, parents, teachers, and volunteers, we need donors to unite and join the Love Learning Music Founding Partners Team! 
 

The Love Learning Music Founding Partners Team will be the crucial foundation for our After School Program.  We are asking every future member of the Founding Partners Team to give $1,000 - $5,000 and ask three friends to join the unified effort.

LLM International Dept. Update

God is continuing to impact children from around the world through Love Learning Music!  The Love Learning Music team of skilled missionaries has been grounded since the pandemic started.  LLM’s International Director who is now the After School Program Director, Jean-Pierre Leroy has been faithfully sending finances to partner ministries in Kenya and Togo, Africa.  The empowerment happening in those communities for children and families is life-changing!  Please enjoy the specific ways children and families are being impacted with these two newsletters from our partner ministries:

The Love Learning Music After School Program is more than a music education program serving children here in the USA.  LLM Volunteers, teachers, and team members are unifying to provide music, dance, drama, songwriting, physical activity, trauma healing, behavior regulation strategies, and tactics for overcoming life’s challenges for children in need.  Some of our children are from international families and born here, some are born in struggling countries around the world and adopted into loving families here, some struggle to succeed in school due to trauma and/or special needs.  Though we may currently be focused on loving the children and families at our After School Program, Love Learning Music is profoundly impacting and empowering children around the world!
