I am developing a hip hop music workshop that focuses on the character ethics model and teaching superior life and social skills.Hip means to know and hop means to act so at the very basis of hip hop is the power of knowledge with the motivation to act. I want to develop a ten week session and will be piloting the program during Act II at Rebound where I will be volunteering this summer.My project would have a holistic feel to it covering the four dimensions: physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional development and continuous assessment of thoughts and feelings. Music reaches the most people in the fastest way and breaks down their defense mechanisms opening up themselves for change and growth. My program would inspire people to use music as a way to not only cope with life but thrive!
