It’s A Cold World Teaches Youth How to Survive

Cold World Promo- version 2The community, youth and city of Syracuse are gearing up for the upcoming Life skills week long session from Feb. 16th – 2oth, 2015. A part of the R.E.A.L. Talk series, “It’s a Cold World: What Every Youth Needs to Know to Survive” offers 5 days of intense life skills training for youth, parents and service providers. Focusing on J. Cole’s latest album “2014 Forest Hills Drive,” the sessions will use Hip-Hop to bridge youth to opportunity, understanding and skill set.

“It’s A Cold World” will feature prominent artists, speakers and Hip-Hop notables such as “Wise Intelligent” from Poor Righteous Teachers, Alvin “Aqua” Blanco from Hiphopwired.com, and Poison Ivory, singer and recording artist. The series will be co-facilitated by Sena McLeod, Founder and CEO of Reaching For Higher Ground Consulting and the New York Institute of Dance and Education. For more info or to RSVP for your youth call 315-281-9690.

People likely would recognize Stephens this winter by his stage name, “DJ Maestro,” spinning the latest beats and pumping up the crowd before any SU basketball game. But Stephens spends much of his time serving as the executive director of Good Life or teaching the evolution of hip-hop at SUNY Cortland.
