FACILITATING INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMING
Our consultants, speakers, and educators have engaged in extensive training, research and practice on the intersections of popular culture and a number of academic subjects and school related topics. We are experts on hip-hop as it relates to STEM, english, counseling, school leadership and wellness.
Through in person and virtual events we come to your classroom, school, board room or community space to prepare stakeholders in education with keynotes addresses, trainings and professional development that anchor hip-hop culture and its philosophies in improving learning and leadership.
Our annual HipHopEd conference and mini-events throughout the year bring audiences from across the world to our team in New York City for training and an opportunity to share best practice in teaching and learning.
Our team of educators work with institutions to both design and redesign lessons / curriculum in order to provide young people with academically rigorous and culturally rich learning experiences across subject areas
