The goal of Heal to Hip Hop is to heal through movement. HTHH combines dance and therapy. These dance sessions offer a series of movements designed to assist youth and young adults with releasing stress and anxiety. Through music and dance we bond, create community, and release all outside stressors as we get in tune with our bodies in a safe space.
The goal of The Literation Project is to engage Black & Brown youth in reading and also teaching them the basic fundamentals of money and how to save. Financial literacy is not taught in the schools. Our goal is to inform, prepare and teach youth and young adults how to manage their money. It’s imperative for them all to know the basic ins and outs of finance as this will better prepare them for their futures. The Literation Project also builds community amongst the youth, giving them the opportunity to get to know one another building sisterhood and brotherhood.
The Virtual Reading Village is designed to cultivate and create connections amongst our young ladies.

Each week during this program we turn the pages to reveal new discussions, interactive activities, and on the spot mentoring. In person cohorts coming soon.
