THE MENTOR OF MENTORS
Our longtime mentor and Founder of Haven Studios, Andre “ADD-2” Daniels, recently stepped into the role of Regional Director for Chicago. After having served as a mentor to hundreds of young people both in the classroom and in his own Haven Studios, Andre has made an impact beyond words. In his own artist career he has many accolades and recognitions, most recently being elected Governor of the Recording Academy in Chicago and receiving a Telly Award for a poem featured in Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote Organization.
We caught up with ADD-2 to hear the story of his journey with Guitars Over Guns since 2014 in his own words.
How did you get into mentoring? Do you have any stories about your own mentors you’d like to share?
We’d like to congratulate former Regional Director, Andrew DeMuro, on his transition to a new role as Director of Program Quality. Congratulations are in order to Dominic “I.B. Fokuz” Pettis EL for his promotion to Programs Supervisor, Chicago, and to longtime mentor, Mark Anderson, for joining the team as High School Programs Manager.
Over at Haven Studios, Jeremiah “RE@L” Fristoe, has stepped up as Studio Director and still actively mentors with Haven Cinema.
Want to work with us in Chicago? Reach out. We’d love to hear from you.
