Harvard Westlake Jazz Band Outreach Performers Club






Inspired by our friendship and love for Jazz music, we have created the official Harvard Westlake Jazz Band Outreach Performers Club. From our 9th grade jazz combo through the pandemic, music has brought us together, whether we were onstage or gathered in each other’s yards playing for the neighbors. Founded by Gavin Goldsmith, HW J-BOP serves as a philanthropic jazz club with a mission to share our passion and heal others through music.

The Harvard Westlake Jazz Band Outreach Performers (HW J-BOP) is an inclusive club dedicated to providing free entertainment (performing jazz music) for philanthropic events. Events such as, but not limited to charity (non-profit) functions, senior centers, homeless shelters, as well as hosting fundraising concerts for specific charities of the clubs choosing.  This is an opportunity to share our passion for jazz music while giving back to our community.

The Guadalupe Homeless Project (GHP) was founded by community residents in 1988, when they decided to open the doors to their most sacred space - Dolores Mission Church - so that unhoused refugee families could sleep there. To this day, GHP’s men’s shelter continues to operate out of Dolores Mission Church, serving 45 men nightly. In 2014, GHP set up a women’s shelter to serve 15 women over the age of 55 - the only shelter for elderly women in Los Angeles.


Ohana One International performs surgical missions to underserved countries. They lead trips to Mozambique, Honduras, and other international locations each year. To further support the surgical missions they perform, they provide smart glass technology to their surgical teams, enhancing the effectiveness of an institute's training resources.
