The 7th Element
We provide a safe and respectful space for youth to express themselves creatively and learn leadership skills via hip-hop culture. This program is guided by a group of well-known hip-hop commercial artists.
By engaging youth in Dance, DJ-ing, Fashion, Art, and Media & Spoken Word, we foster respectful and inspiring communities. Young adults learn how to grow independently and develop skills that they can extend to professional careers.
It is nothing short of inspiring to watch youth participants create their own song or rap and perform cool dance moves. Our kids and teens have also shot action photos and action video footage of their classmates. They are also serving as team leaders and peer facilitators.
We provide after-school and summer programs through our collaborative partners.
