SECTION: Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRY: United States of America PROJECT: YOUTH DEVELOPMENT THROUGH MUSIC: HIP HOP4HUMANITY DESCRIPTION: The Business of Entertainment, sponsored by Hip Hop4Humanity (HH4H), seeks to decrease the recidivism and high school dropout rate by fostering entrepreneurial spirit with a focus on youth development through the art of music. HH4H recognizes that young people who are exposed to music programs excel academically and are more likely to attend college. As the State of Georgia has cut its music programs in schools, a tremendous need for a curriculum-based music program has developed. The Business of Entertainment was launched in 2005 on the campus of Emory University as an alternative educational summer camp program in association with Georgia State University School of Social Work MSW Program and Communities In Schools. Communities In Schools started in Georgia over thirty years ago and is now the nation‟s leading dropout prevention organization, serving over one million youth in 25 states and the District of Columbia. High school students selected for this program were able to experience college life during an intensive week of music-based activities. They were introduced to opportunities that exist within the music and entertainment industries while incorporating character development and reinforcing academic standards. Students participated in skillbuilding workshops led by entertainment industry professionals, trained educators and community leaders. The Business of Entertainment fostered self-esteem and confidence in the students and demonstrated how to use music to enhance study skills, resolve conflicts, effective communication, team building and interpersonal skills. Students who initially felt they had no musical skills were able to come together in a group and create a music project in a simulated studio environment led by a Grammy award-winning recording engineer. Students were encouraged to use their experience to help them achieve success in the classroom and in their community. The program allowed students to have a creative outlet in performing arts and music. Students gained a unique insight and experience exploring various opportunities and learning hands-on while working on music projects through the infusion of inquiry-based instruction and also focusing on areas not traditionally covered in high school curriculums. CURRENT STATUS: The Business of Entertainment was launched as a pilot program and components are currently being used in other entertainment summer camps and programs across the country. The current goal is to replicate the program in its entirety or a la cart on a national and global level. It is funded through donations from private individuals, corporate sponsors and philanthropic foundations. Entertainment industry professionals founded HH4H in 2001. HH4H is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focusing on educational and health initiatives for at-risk youth. Among its many projects, HH4H supports The Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia that uses music to transform children‟s lives in education.
