Created in 2013, the Power 2 Inspire Foundation (a 501c3) has been committed to helping aspiring music creators and industry leaders and business leaders rise to their highest self. It is our mission to ensure that young musicians and music professionals are equipped with the tools that will be needed for future opportunities in the music business. 

The Power 2 Inspire Foundation (P2I) is proud to announce its 2021 Summer Internship/Mentorship Program for gifted musicians, ambitious singers and songwriters and high potential music business innovators.

After the tremendous success of last year’s inaugural program in response to Black Lives Matter initiative, we will host 60 ambitious Black & Brown young people [ages 18-24] from throughout the U.S. and abroad who will receive a four-week virtual experience to learn the ropes from some of the world’s leading global music industry professionals. 

Participants can expect to receive the following:

  • Masterclasses featuring interactive presentations from leading schools and programs 
  • Virtual guest scholar lecturers with intensive music training and industry insights 
  • Scholarship opportunities for mentees who need assistance to succeed in their future in music  

This year’s program will be conducted from July 12-August 9, 2021

We are proud to have Sweetwater Sound as the lead sponsor for this year's program.


To the next generation,
