Read2Rap’s mission is to empower today’s youth in a positive fashion and assist the community in developing the skills to allow our youth to make the right choices for their future. By tapping into our youth’s hidden potential we will develop new leaders to move our community forward. Read2Rap strives to engage youth and bring together families, community agencies, leaders and law enforcement to implement positive solutions for the community. Youth must be able to express themselves in a positive fashion. It was seen that youth needed the platform through positive, thought provoking influences that can assist them in building healthy relationships and support critical thinking allowing them to challenge themselves to continue to be better members of society.
