It’s been proven that inner-city youth who are actively involved in the arts, perform better academically than those who don’t. At Teen HYPE, we expose Detroit youth to various forms of the arts such as theater, music, poetry, dance and much more, so that they can find their passion and purpose in life through the arts.
We offer youth:
- A creative outlet. Youth write, produce and star in our annual theater production in front of more than 5,000 Metropolitan Detroit students.
- Workshops that prepare them for the next phase of their lives. We help youth improve their public speaking, interviewing and communication skills. They learn proper etiquette, how to dress for success, study skills as well as other tools they need for the next stage in life.
- Exposure to the world and culture around them. Youth visit cultural institutions and explore various forms of art, literature and other mediums of creative expression for inspiration.
