Project Ubuntu visits Juneau

Project Ubuntu, a national, year-long service project, will be in Alaska to support Juneau Alaska Music Matters (JAMM) April 29-May 3, visiting the three local schools where JAMM works to create access to music education for all children.

Project Ubuntu founder Daniel Becton is traveling to all 50 states and Washington, D.C., supporting one group in each state, with a goal of celebrating service through a variety of forms. Alaska is the 35th stop on his yearlong journey, which runs August 2012 to August 2013.

Becton supports Project Ubuntu’s partners by channeling his skills and resources to meet their needs, and by sharing his perspective on service and building positive community. He dedicates one week to each partner to learn their stories, and writes about his experiences.

Becton studied philosophy, music and women’s studies at the University of North Carolina, and has a master’s degree in Gender Studies from the London School of Economics.
