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.

“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 Stand Newspaper Spotlights Exec. Dir.

Stand picStephens runs Good Life Youth Foundation, a program for at-risk youth in Syracuse.

Stephens says he’s worked with about two dozen youths since 2012, when he acquired space in the South Side Innovation Center and launched Good Life, an organization where he combines his passion for hip-hop music with his mission to show youths how to beat poverty. 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.
