The AGO offers programs such as Pedals, Pipes and Pizza and Pipe Organ Encounters to give youth a chance to interact with the pipe organ. Chapter scholarship programs can offer a way to nurture young students by not only providing education but also building a sense of community through social activities and giving them opportunities to showcase their success in student recitals. Find out how your chapter can successfully implement these programs as well as workshops and summer organ camps.
