Empowering Youth through musical instruments. . .
The AFT-ID team will identify individuals “givers” who have underused instruments and would like to “Play it Forward” by donating their instruments to AFT-ID.
The AFT-ID team will work to identify individuals, schools or organizations who would benefit from having access to their own instruments.
Play it Forward Pledge - when AFT-ID provides instruments to youth, AFT-ID will request that the youth return the instrument if they upgrade or decide they are no longer interested in playing that type of instrument. This will allow the instruments to remain in rotation and help to provide
more instruments to youth.
