The Antidote: Thiriving Youth & Flint Water Crisis
We would like to host a panel of 2-4 that will discuss the effects of the Flint Water Crisis on the youth in Flint, MI and how our program is working to teach youth how to thrive and express themselves through several different mediums. We will focus mostly on our music program that teaches and trains youth to engineer music from the ground up, lyrics to production. Our innovative methods have sparked a whole new world of creativity, career mindedness, and well rounded approach to music.
