Partnerships & Support

Oak Tree Project #8 is focused on youth mental health and sharing stories about how music is a tool of healing, connection and renewal. We are partnering with The Awesome Music Project to raise $30,000 that will allow them to bring a full year of Awesome Music Hour programming to every Grove Hub location in Wellington & Guelph.

About the Awesome Music Project

The Awesome Music Project creates music-based programming that acts as a catalyst for conversations about mental wellness. Their work is grounded in research and encourages open discussions about mental health and how music can impact mental wellness. The Awesome Music Project is a registered Canadian charity.

Their goal is to have every youth walk into our doors feeling like they belong. There are 5 hub sites located across Wellington and Guelph. The Grove Hubs is a registered Canadian charity.
