W.O.R.D. operates in-class and extracurricular hip-hop based literacy programs for high-school aged students who seek additional learning opportunities in Montreal’s public schools.
We use youth culture/art as the primary way to connect with young people. For W.O.R.D, this most often means hip hop.
We use popular culture and subculture to start critical/constructive conversations about social issues and the experiences of young people.
We support youth in creating their own music, to express themselves, their reality, and have a positive impact on their communities.
We want a more just world where young people’s innate skill sets and strengths are valued in ways that allow them to tackle real world problems.
