Youth in Action

An important component of IWJ is the Youth In Action category.  We “discover” young female jazz musicians and encourage their participation and present a platform of performance to the jazz community through IWJ auditions, activities and events.  An IWJ “sister” will serve as a mentor and follow their careers.  We also encourage our youth to participate in our community activities and our First Mondays monthly jam session.
