IDK Paving the Way for Youth
IDK is creating opportunities for youth. IDK’s No Label Academy, a 10-day program, will take place in August on the school’s campus in Boston. Most importantly, the program will help students start careers in the music industry. Also, applications became available this week and students who are accepted will receive free tuition.
“I created this program to show people in the BIPOC community that pursuing a career in the arts is more attainable than society portrays it to be,” IDK stated.
Brand Sponsorship with Nike, Others
IDK is partnering with Nike and other brands to launch the comprehensive program. Brian K. Price, clinical professor of law at Harvard Law School and director of the Transactional Law Clinics, accepted the invitation to serve as an adviser for the new program. Price is supporting the initiative“because education is key to launching and maintaining a successful enterprise.”
“If you want to pursue music as a business, you need to think and act like an entrepreneur. It’s crucial to have a solid understanding and know how to apply that knowledge. Learning from personal experience is valuable, but learning from experienced individuals is also important,” he stated. “I’m glad to support initiatives that educate learners on making wise decisions.”
Hats go off to IDK, a rapper who joins a growing list of artists providing opportunities for the community. IDK and other artists are the role models the youth need to stay on a positive path forward. Success is always an option.
