Today we will feature some organizations that have been very successful in bringing positive change in the lives of youth from low income communities, by inspiring and empowering them through various arts and music programs.
Building Beats is a non-profit organization focused on raising money for DJ and music programs for youth in low-resource communities. By leveraging the community of DJ's and music fans, Building Beats aims to use social media, the internet, and local events across the world to raise money for art programs that teach youth leadership and entrepreneurial skills. In partnership with Today's Future Sound, and other organizations, Building Beats are able to provide workshops that teach students to make their own beats and often the opportunity to experiment with music making for the first time.
