Our Shepherd School students provide a variety of community engagement activities in the Greater Houston Area, and many initiate their own projects. However, the Shepherd School supports three major initiatives:
Just for U Music Program (JUMP!) - a student-led, faculty-mentored outreach program serving Houston area schools.
New Art/ New Music was a partnership with the Rice University Gallery. Plans are in progress to move the program to the Moody Center for the Arts in Late Fall 2017. Shepherd School students organize and perform concerts of new and contemporary music that complement installations at the Gallery.
The Sviatoslav Fund for Music Outreach - provides financial support for student outreach projects that are selected through a granting process.
