Extra-curricular activities boost school attendance and keep students out of trouble. This is why I would like to start a student led Mariachi Band on my campus. These traditional mariachi instruments will allow us to learn and play this beautiful folk music in the style it was intended. We will use this assistance to start a group where my students will learn to perform Mariachi music, as well as learning the history and customs of Mexico and Latin America. My goal is that my students will use this as a stepping stone towards college admissions, as well as motivation to continue their personal development in any path they may choose. As the group progresses we will be able to go out into our community and perform, which will allow us to continue to grow and reach more young people. Our Mariachi band will be leaders on campus through our hard-work, dedication, and service!
