Fusion is a year-round activity, which was first launched by in 2009 in Czech Republic and Latvia. Since then it has spread and there are now also Fusion choirs in Estonia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
Each Fusion is run by a local church, but is open to all teenagers. There are many opportunities for the teenagers to learn new skills, not only learning a new instrument, but also more practical skills such as team work and how to organize weekends and events.

A brief look at what Fusion is and why it works.
In many places the Fusion projects and their volunteers have received awards and grants by City Halls in recognition of the transforming work it has done in the lives of teenagers who join the groups. In addition, the groups have a high level of street credibility amongst the youth.
Although Fusion looks like a music ministry, it is actually a relational minsitry, using music as a tool. In every rehearsal the teenage members hear a „devotion“ given by one of the leaders, but much of the life changing work of Fusion happens outside of the formal rehearsals.
