NOTJC invited 9 scholarship students to attend this year's June camp. They had to cover their transportation to New Orleans but NOTJC 
needed to acquire additional funds to cover their housing. Positive Vibrations to the rescue! Their grant made it possible for these talented
young musicians to study with the best faculty from New Orleans and across the country. It was a great week for them and we are hoping to
invite some of them back for next year!
Positive Vibrations Foundation is a non-profit private operating foundation formed exclusively for charitable and educational purposes as 
defined by IRS section 501(c)(3). The mission of the Positive Vibrations Foundation is to create and encourage community through the 
development and preservation of the arts, music, culture and heritage. The Foundation promotes and underwrites music for progressive 
community festivals and events, supports music performance and industry education programs for youth, and provides the public with
