The National Youth Orchestra of Jamaica (NYOJ) is a social development program aimed at enhancing the lives of children from challenged communities. The program utilises lessons in classical music to instil core values of discipline, perseverance and dedication, fostering emotional and intellectual development in our participants.

Through the creation of youth orchestras the program promotes teamwork, compassion and self-esteem. Beyond enriching lives with a new creative component or musical outlet the program reinforces that we all have an effect on the lives of the people we  interact with and by advocating kindness and consideration we encourage our students to make that impact positive.
