Hello Insight is proud to partner with the We Are All Music Foundation to amplify the power of music to change lives. Our partnership with WAAM has evolved out of a mutual belief in and commitment to music programs that support social and emotional learning (SEL)! Together we are dedicated to understanding and sharing the impact of this work.
The We Are All Music Foundation is a central voice dedicated to raising awareness of music's profound impact on social causes. Our Music Impact Research Center funds, researches, aggregates, and disseminates data measuring music’s influence through rigorous scientific means.
We provide meaningful support to the most impactful music nonprofits focused on Education and Health & Wellness, primarily in underserved communities. WAAM awards transformative grants and works closely with each grantee to help them achieve their goals, develop collaborative initiatives and guide best practices.
WAAM regularly vets and evaluates every program's effectiveness, reach, and sustainability — making sure every dollar is invested in the most impactful way.
"Hello Insight, simply put, is a game-changer. SEL is not something that you learn cognitively, it is something you develop experientially, and Hello Insight is the first tool that I trust to measure that. There is no replacement for our mentors (teaching artists) feeling empowered to grow and deepen their practice because they finally have a tool to understand and evaluate their impact.
SEL impact measurements we have used prior are too long, use lofty academic terminology, and are not offered in languages other than English - all factors that compromise the validity of data. Hello Insight surveys are designed with students first. The reports help us communicate the story of our impact to funders and the opportunities for growth to our practitioners and the HI staff does an incredible job helping on both of those fronts. Finally, the metrics are baselined with hundreds of thousands of students engaged in programs throughout the country - the only alternative to that is to engage in research that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and take years."
