UPLIFTING AND EMPOWERING COMMUNITY
What is Hip Hop University: Hip-Hop University is an organization that focuses on educating and uplifting communities through hip hop.
How does Hip Hop University Work: At the Hip-Hop University (HHU), we use hip-hop to raise awareness and as a learning tool for community members of all demographics. We host events that help community members engage with one another and focus on finding solutions to local and global issues. Our community members gain skills and knowledge necessary to lead civic engagement, education reform and community organizing activities. We believe if community members have mutually beneficial relationships with the people and institutions of their social world, they will be on the way to a hopeful future marked by positive contributions to self, family, community, and civil society.
Who do we work with: We work with local goverment entitites, community organizations, small business owners and large corporations. We use local and internationally known musicians and artists to help raise awareness and develop a plan for the desired outcomes.
