Description

Hip Hop 4 Life is a non-profit organization celebrating ten years of being committed to assisting youth in developing character, leadership, professionalism, health awareness, and college and career readiness. Our mission is to provide interactive life skills training and health and wellness programs designed to engage, educate, and empower young people to lead extraordinary lives. This is done via our Empowerment Team Mentoring, Youth Development and Community Outreach programs. Since 2003, Hip Hop 4 Life served over 15,000 youth and parents.

Hip Hop 4 Life was created in response to vital health and life issues among adolescent youth, especially within lower-income communities of color in predominantly urban areas. The growing problems related to physical and mental health, as well as the lack of needed resources in underserved schools and neighborhoods, presented a clear need for programs that can begin to combat ignorance and lack of motivation to better preserve one’s life and future. Through our programs, students will learn the non-cognitive skills that will build their capacity to combat the challenges associated with student achievement, cultivate post-secondary aspirations, and provide them with life skills that will prepare them for their transition into adulthood.

What makes Hip Hop 4 Life unique is our innate ability to apply a variety of programming formats that infuse the art, influence, and community of Hip Hop to immediately engage, involve, and connect with the youth that we serve.
