Registered & Drop-in Programs in Art Spaces, Schools, Community Centers, and Online
Unity partners with educational institutions, community centres, non-profit and social service organizations to deliver free Hip Hop programming to youth (12-29) in predominantly underserved communities. These weekly programs are 8-30 weeks in length, are delivered year-round, and make up the bulk of Unity’s youth-focused Hip Hop education. Some programs are multidisciplinary and introduce participants to all of the Hip Hop art forms, while others are art form specific, and seek to build the foundations of an amateur or entry level artist’s skill set. Through these programs, youth participants improve mental health and well-being outcomes, and are given significant roles in mentorship, performance, evaluation, and volunteering so they may contribute to the well-being of their communities.
