Help Support Free Music Education in Chicago with The People's Music School

Get involved at TPMS!

Interested in ongoing support for our work? Read on! 


Board of Directors 

Our Board of Directors is comprised of our closest circle of advocates and investors. A great fit for those looking for leadership roles in strategic guidance, governance, financial oversight, and ambassadorship to help our school thrive.


Associate Board 

Our Associate Board members organize events to spread the word across Chicago, and lend their talents and time to projects – from marketing to IT to student mentoring – throughout the year. A great fit for those passionate about supporting and promoting awareness about our school’s mission, vision, and values.


Friends of TPMS  

The focus of this initiative, new to TPMS for the 2015-2016 school year, is to pair high school students in our SLAM (Service, Leadership And Mentoring) program with professionals in the community who believe in and want to contribute to students’ experiences at TPMS. A musical background is definitely appreciated, but not required! Learn more about Friends of TPMS here.


TPMS Ambassadors 

Have an idea for how to share the story, work, and impact of TPMS with a broader community? Know people who may be interested in supporting our school in some way? Want to join those who have hosted large and small events – from comedy shows to concerts; from happy hours to dinner parties and bar mitzvah fundraisers – to contribute the financial resources needed for our fully privately-funded model? Let us know! We were founded on and continue to grow because of strong support from our community members.


Corporate Volunteer Groups 

Did you know that all TPMS families contribute at least eight hours of volunteering a semester – and collectively do the work of sixteen full time staff? In addition to our family volunteers, we welcome corporate groups for projects such as painting, one-day consulting projects, and more.


Interested in one of the opportunities above?
