We first met Corey SantOne DePina at a Mighty Mighty Bosstones concert not too long ago with some of his students at Zumix, and we could tell right then that he was the real rock star of the evening. Zumix is an award-winning music and creative technology program designed to equip youth with the tools necessary to reach their full potential, while creating a safe space for youth to explore who they are and who they want to be. In addition to working at Zumix, Corey also started the Fogo Project where he is working to raise money and gather musical equipment to create a permanent music education program on the island. Madeleine Steczynski, Zumix founder and also a former guest on ATB, is our co-host and she has known Corey since he walked in the doors of Zumix as a 12 year old.
