Unity uses the Arts to empower youth with confidence and skills for success. Unity uses hip hop to improve young people’s lives, creating healthier communities.
- Who we engage: Unity pulls in youth who may feel disconnected or overwhelmed by stress.
- Why hip hop: hip hop is a universal community consisting of art forms that youth relate to and can access.
- What is the impact: youth achieve their full potential, creating healthy and vibrant communities.
In the Unity Community Program, youth learn the foundations of the hip-hop art forms (dance, beatbox, spoken word, and graffiti) in workshops led by Unity Artists. The workshops are geared toward community building, empowerment, leadership, confidence and goal setting skills through the arts.
