Washington, DC — Javier Starks, DC HipHop artist, launches The One Million STRONG Tour fundraiser to raise $10,000 to support an educational program used to inspire creative development and leadership through positive hip-hop music to students of all grade levels. The goal outcome of this program is to teach students methods on how to creatively communicate through hip-hop, encouraging leadership development which will ultimately help them change the world.
Starks has targeted a list of schools throughout the United States that lack creative arts development programs for their students. As a solution, The One Million STRONG Tour program features a series of workshops that covers the basics of song writing, healthy social behaviors and universal life lessons. The One Million STRONG Tour is expected to begin September 2014 and continue through December 2014.
“We're going to bring positive hip-hop to places where the very idea is obscure. Workshops that not only that encourage a creative skills set and highlights the importance of positivity” Starks said.
Currently, Starks conducts The One Million STRONG Tour program’s interactive workshops at Georgetown Day School, where students have used hip-hop music as a mechanism for self-expression through speech and written communication. In result, many of Georgetown Day School students have become leaders.
“Starks is a dedicated member of our school community, and exemplifies the type of role model we want for all of our students. His programs have creative capacities that serve as invaluable assets to our school through his positive messages as an Hip-Hop artist” said Laura Yee, Principal of Georgetown Day School.
