Our project-based hip-hop-in-action programs motivate, educate, and activate students in personal and community development. The start-to-finish builds creativity, confidence, and character while achieving educational benchmarks and standards.
Students learn skills in digital music composition, lyric writing, recording arts, and public performance. Enriching experiences and critical thinking about our surroundings provide a baseline for youth voice to emerge.
Their music and message develop through collaboration with other students and guidance from professional community change recording artists. Through the creative, song writing process, students express experiences, perspectives, problems and solutions.
We listen carefully to what students are saying and give them opportunities to create fresh action, such as planting new neighborhood gardens, tasting the fresh food, silk screening our own t-shirts, and writing songs that promote our neighborhood farmer's market.
