Covid has affected our youth in many ways
It is urgent that we help
We know our youth and teens are resilient, but the increased gaps in equity for black and brown students needs to be solved. We are working with struggling schools and students who need help with mental health, relationship building and job skills.
From the Chrysalis Trilogy. . .
"Light It Up"
What will it be like to break through the chrysalis with strong wings. . .and emerge as a butterfly?
Engaging hip-hop based curriculums activate students in deep learning. Youth and teens listen to hip-hop on the way to and from school. Here's how to use hip-hop in-school to support social and emotional learning as well as academic achievement.
After school and during summer, teens find loving mentors at our neighborhood recording studios who guide collaborative music making projects and teach reflective writing practices. Students tell their own stories of struggle and success by producing their own hip-hop songs.
Internships and summer jobs at our recording studios give teens real world experience in the studio and on stage. They create a resume, practice job interviews and gain transferrable employment skills.

Teens gain valuable experience managing inventory, creating social media campaigns and selling our fresh apparel to customers at our t-shirt shop.
