Casa de Amistad is an after-school 1-on-1 mentoring and tutoring organization that is dedicated to fostering the education and character development of Hispanic children and their families from the North County coastal region of San Diego County. “The House of Friendship” serves over 200 kids annually.
In January, 2015, the San Diego Youth Symphony began a partnership with Casa de Amistad that includes teaching after-school beginning strings instruction to Casa students who are in grades 4-7. SDYS provides instruments and group instruction for the young musicians. Concerts and performances are held throughout the North County and San Diego area. SDYS has undertaken this partnership to provide a local anchor for working toward restoration of music education in Solana Beach and neighboring cities’ elementary schools.
