The Purpose of the Vitamin L Project

The purpose of The Vitamin L Project was and is to encourage positive character development through music, by uplifting and inspiring young people with lessons that are meaningful in their daily lives. Our goal was and continues to be that young listeners absorb the lessons of tolerance, respect, cooperation, kindness, perseverance and confidence presented in the songs, and integrate these concepts in ways that help them make good choices and have healthy relationships with their families, their friends and the world around them.

We accomplish our purpose with original, character-building songs written by Jan Nigro. For 32 years, from 1989–2021, the songs reached children via our five award winning recordings and via live concerts. The songs continue to reach children and people of all ages through Vitamin L's YouTube channel, and through recordings and streaming services.

In the years of live Vitamin L concerts, a group of youth singers, age 10–21, took turns performing in concerts with Jan. Nine youth members joined Jan onstage for each show, with the exception of some special events that had a larger group. The concerts were at schools, festivals, teacher's conferences, community events and camps. The recordings have been used in schools, camps and homes in the United States and in some other countries.

We believe that there is an ongoing need to encourage the development of positive, universal values in children. We chose to use the powerful medium of music to offer life-enhancing messages and uplifting ideas to inspire young people to be loving, kind, caring, helpful, respectful, and to make good choices. We believe that this kind of musical influence is very important and needed. We know that Vitamin L music has been effective in helping support the positive in this world.
