Belize International Music Alliance

The BIMA is an educational music orientated program. In which we emphasize heavily on academic education. We will be partnering with the ministry of Education to recommence all (10) at-risk youth under B.I.M.A back in school. When They enter the education system they must maintain an average of sixty percent and above. Our program will assist youths to achieve music proficiency. It's mission is to open doors for artist and songwriters to have a career in the music industry internationally. They will have access to acquire music advice on a global level, personal fulfillment, musical knowledge and proficiency. Dialogue and hearing the struggles of others can help motivate, inspire, and encourage more youth engagement. They will be formally trained with a view to eventually maintain a close relationship with international record labels through web seminars due to our international connections. Both Caribbean artists and youths BIMA can cooperate to produce a viable work (product/music).

Hi, I really like your idea and this comment that you shared is key, "but cannot leave their community / environment without being threatened, hurt or even killed." Many youth that have gotten tangled up in gangs literally cannot leave their house for fear of their safety. Will you bring the lessons into their home? What about recording them...is there a component of your program whereby you can go into their home and record them and then the music can be shared on youtube and other avenues without them every having to leave their living room?

food for thought...i think you should not only target the high schools at risk youth only i think you should have a branch specifically to deal with the primary schools at risk youth as well but all in all its a great idea good riddance
