What We Do

The ISM Music & Entertainment Industry Academy uses music and the performing arts as a vehicle to decrease risky behavior amongst the youth in Southwestern Michigan.  ISM uses mentoring to break negative cycles and affect long-term and positive change amongst our youth.  ISM believes in partnering with other organizations and entities, where possible, to better meet kids’ needs while conserving limited resources in SW Michigan.

ISM Academy aims to develop leadership and behavioral skills in youth while enhancing their passion for music, the performing arts, and giving back to the community.  We build self-esteem by offering hope to our youth.
