Youth ages 12 - 22 learn creative, technical and entrepreneurial skills directly from Hip Hop industry professionals, practitioners and pioneers. In addition to the 5 main elements of Hip Hop: DJing (Music & Technology), Emceeing (Creative Writing & Music), B-boying/girling (Dance), Writing (Visual/Urban Art) & Knowledge (Knowledge of self + Hip Hop history and philosophy), the experience encourages teamwork, improved self-esteem, critical thinking, leadership and the application of Hip Hop’s “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” attitude to achieving personal, professional and educational goals.

We support youth as they work through the physical, emotional, psychological and social challenges that accompany working through trauma and mental illness. In partnership with our partners, Royal Life Centers, we offer programs to adults struggling with addiction and comorbid diagnoses in therapeutic settings in Washington State and Arizona.
