Our goal is to develop leaders who are confident with their own image because they are literate, cultured and socially aware. It is our belief that youth should be provided the opportunity to develop their own voice and present their own message.
Focus is placed on developing leadership skills and improving literacy within an interactive framework of analysing and writing music, individual and group activities, speech and performance skills and self-image assessment.
The Read2Rap Program allows participants to receive concentrated instruction and development in their art, fully understand the history and origins of Hip Hop culture as a whole, and to recognize its capacity as an effective tool for personal and social change. Rap music and Hip Hop culture is used as the vehicle to bring youth closer to the leader within. Students are engaged in research, creative writing, speech arts, teamwork and thought provoking discussion.
Topics of discussion may include:
- Other personal or community issues
