Summary

Begun in 2010 in partnership with Austin Independent School District and Travis County, Austin Classical Guitar developed the only for-credit arts class offered in Travis County’s Juvenile Justice System. The program has grown steadily and is achieving remarkable results within the Gardner Betts residential facility. Students perform quarterly in the courthouse for the swearing-in ceremony of Court Appointed Special Advocates. At the request of county officials, the program is set to expand as an offering available for all Travis County court-involved youth. Osborne will share his experience building and maintaining this unique and innovative program.
