The Gia Maione Prima Foundation
The Trombone Shorty Foundation, founded in 2012, seeks to build the next generation of young talent: to create music industry career pathways for New Orleans youth, empower them with the skills and perspective to succeed in business and in life, and to offer mentorship and support throughout the process. The work of the Foundation is inspired by Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, who was one such youth whose community support in academics, music, and business fostered a career that represents New Orleans culture around the world.
