Our Customer Spotlight Series focuses on individuals and companies that have worked and benefited from Meadows Resources Virtual Assistant Team. Below we speak with Jeffery Tribble Jr. of The MusicianShip:
Company and Background
The MusicianShip is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that changes lives by facilitating music lessons, experiences, and opportunities for youth who need us most. We have been vetted and approved by DC Public Schools to be an official After-School Service Provider since 2010—allowing us to provide free-of-charge music programs for many students who would not otherwise have such opportunities. The MusicianShip provides after-school and summer programs, serving approximately 600 students 2017. In addition to our after-school and summer programs, we support two performance troupes, The MusicianShip All-City Marching Band and the Washington Youth Choir. We serve a dual role in the community as educators and mentors—using music as a platform for students to achieve in all areas of life.
Tell us a little about yourself and MusicianShip:
I (Jeffery) grew up on the south side of Chicago and I while I did come from good home, I also saw the environment around me. When I got older I wanted to find a way to get young people of color away from things that plague that environment. I got a music scholarship to go to Howard University in DC and did well in college. Music has always been a part of life and went onto Law School and in my second year founded MusicianShip. I wanted to help young people in different situations like the ones I saw growing up to get educational experiences. We facilitate music lessons, after school programs, summer programs, and have 600 kids this year involved in music programs.
