Join Give a Beat in particapting and raising awareness for United Nation’s International Youth Day! We are partnering with 11 events in 10 cities to raise funds for Give a Beat music and mentoring programs for youth in underserved communities.
In our fight against mass incarceration we recognize that youth are severely impacted by this system. The US is the world leader in incarcerating youth. We are the only industrialized country in the world to sentence children to life, place them in solitary confinement, try them as adults, and send them to adult prisons at a stunning average cost of $80K a year, more than a Harvard education. Mass incarceration also heavily burdens families and communites. Hundreds of thousands of youth are growing up with without parents and in homes split apart by the criminal justice system. Together we can help break the vicious grip of youth incarceration in America and give youth a voice!
Join us in partnership with our wondering network of DJs and promoters in 10 U.S. cities this International Youth Day weekend!
