THESE ARE THE PROGRAMS WE HAVE PARTNERED WITH TO BRING MUSIC TO PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD
Peace Tracks is a collaborative project between Plugged In and MapWorks Learning.
With guidance from professional musicians, youth ages 14-18 from schools in the US form bands with youth in schools from other countries around the world to write and produce original songs and music videos that are live streamed in a culminating concert.
Participants in Peace Tracks gain vital experience communicating, collaborating and creating with young people from another world region –– and make unforgettable personal connections.

LINK ONLINE LEARNERS
Link Online Learners is more than a zoom hangout of young people from 35+ countries. It is a global youth network where young people (ages 10-18) can join together at the global table – and that includes YOU! We encourage you to get involved and spread stories of youth collaboration across the globe.
Plugged In’s executive director, Sandra Rizkallah, and music teacher, Poh Hock Kee, are adult mentors in this program.
KIKAO CULTURES is a program in Kenya started by Hijaz Blaq and Fardeen Blaq to educate their peers about the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development goals and create changemakers who work towards meeting the Global Goals of their choice by applying project based learning. As Educators of the SDGs these youth are building the world they want to see.
Plugged In is partnering with Kikao Cultures on developing a cross-cultural online program for youth using music to learn about and address the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development goals. Stay tuned for more information.
