Other programs being funded include Youth Mentoring, where up-and-coming musicians get a chance to be coached by professionals, and the Amateur Jam (AMJAM) program which provides amateur musicians of any age a chance to play with a full band.

The Blues in the Schools stage will entertain between sets with youth performers from WNY schools and colleges.
