HipHopportunity for Youth Inc was founded and formed by experienced youth workers as a dynamic, energetic and alternative way of engaging young people in their communities through the ‘elements’ of hip-hop; emceeing, deejaying, beat boxing, break-dancing and street art.
Our organisation is dually dedicated to the promotion of local and national hip hop culture and the well-being of young people, particularly those of less advantaged backgrounds in central Victoria Australia. Hip-hop is a diverse subculture that we live and respectfully harness to deliver a range of school and community based projects that immerse young people in art, design, music production, dance, poetry and literacy, event management and multimedia .The benefits that then flow from these experiences include increased self-esteem and self efficacy, positive self expression, re-engagement with education, peer mentoring and leadership, career exploration, skill development and social inclusion.
Young people are at the core and fore of HipHopportunities For Youth Inc, coordinating and delivering workshops and active in the committee of management. In practice our model benefits young people simultaneously, giving established and emerging artists avenues to enhance their craft and career whilst exposing a range of young people to the positive elements of hip hop culture and community.
