One important thing to remember in helping (or starting) such  
projects - get the band "real gigs" as soon as possible. This is what  
Bill Armstrong did for the Churchill Street Band and it really made  
it work for the high school students in the band. If all the band  
does is play as an opening act for the local Sunday Jazz Society (or  
even be a "Youth Band" at a festival) it is not the same as having a  
regular, paying gig.
