Hip Hop 4 Life is a champion of positive youth development and empowerment.

Hip Hop 4 Life envisions a time when young people, regardless of race, class, or economic means, will possess the skill sets required to become successful members of society and extraordinary leaders. It is this vision that drives our mission to provide interactive life skills training and health and wellness programs designed to engage, educate, and empower young people to lead extraordinary lives. Our programs assist young people with developing and fostering educational values, personal development, college and post-secondary readiness, leadership, resiliency, positive self-esteem, goal setting skills and most importantly, confidence in one’s capabilities.

Since 2003, Hip Hop 4 Life served over 15,000 youth and parents in our hometown of New York City and across the nation.
