Support quality artists with a heart for the city.

Your donation provides unique full time positions for high quality artist mentors who pour into the lives of young people. You also provide paid workforce development programs for our 16-24 year old artist interns. Together, we provide free summer youth hip-hop camps for students in select neighborhoods of need. This all happens at our two neighborhood Fresh Lab studios in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood of Cleveland and the Price Hill neighborhood of Cincinnati. The songwriting process allows us to communicate deeply about stories of struggle and success and to support the telling of these important stories. During the process, youth and young adults grow in creativity, confidence and character. Listen to the life changing lyrics on songs like "Set the Scene," "Garden of My Mind."

Last year we provided free summer hip-hop camps for 47 students. You can help us provide Fresh Camp to even more students this summer. Thank you for your support. Together we can REFRESH the HEART of the CITY one song, one shirt and one students at a time.
