In your immediate area, try working with your (or "a" if you don't have one) church. Many churches have at least a small number of underprivileged individuals that can benefit from a program. Further, starting small at a church will usually help grow the program.

If you don't already have a church, then "shop" (read: go to services of several) until you find one that makes you feel comfortable. Then, stop in some day at lunch and speak with the pastor and explain your idea. This is the kind of idea that most churches would love to be a part of.

Funding is always an issue. There are tons of fundraising ideas to propose. Ask your pastor to suggest some folks to talk to about fundraising. Create something to sell to local businesses (perhaps a calendar) that they can advertise in.

There are tons of ideas, you just need to find the one that best suits your group. http://www.fundraiserhelp.com/ is a place to look.

Thank you for the link :)
i really want to get this off the ground, i think in my home city (if you knew new castle, PA, you'd understand) the kids really need something to look foward to and I, myself, have been brought to a higher feeling of happiness because i picked up the ukulele and teaching other people is something i'd love to do :) thank you all for your advice and everyone...keep advising lol
