Challenge

Thousands of inner-city youth, due to drastic budget cuts, are being left with nothing to do and no place to go between the hours of 3-5pm which studies show is the crucial time period where youth, given no alternative, are prone to get involved with drugs, sex, and violence. Our Hip-Hop 2 Hollywood Program is addressing this issue by offering youth an artistic alternative to voice their thoughts, ideas, and solutions on various social justice issues affecting their communities.

Solution

Hip-Hop 2 Hollywood participants will write, direct, and edit a short film on a social-justice issue impacting their community. After being showcased at their schools, the top 5 from each school will then be selected to be screened in public festival

Long-Term Impact

Our project will offer opportunities for 100 kids, age 13-19, throughout the school year to actively engage in youth activism, social-justice, and leadership skills by expressing their views and solutions through the creative process of film & music.
