This summer, the Black Eyed Peas, along with their Peapod Foundation and partnering with the philanthropic Adobe Foundation, will be opening Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Music and Multimedia Academy Number Four in New York.
(Young Hollywood) - There are currently three academies which are based in California -- the first was launched in 2008 at a Boys and Girls Club. The Academy caters to underprivileged youth from 13-19 and focuses on the promotion of social change using music. Accredited media makers and performers lead classes that teach the fundamental skills needed in order to be successful in the industry, including field trips and working hands-on with professional equipment.
No doubt, the major success that the Black Eyed Peas have accumulated over the years is a direct reflection of how heavily the group has influenced not only music but aspiring music lovers as well, and their desire to give back to the community at the level they do reinforces just how great they are. says, "Our passion for music and media was fueled by many generous people on our road to success... Expanding the network of Peapod Adobe Youth Voices academies enables us to pay it forward, giving more youth the skills and encouragement they need to realize their dreams."
Admission into the academy in based on teacher recommendations and their level of interest in graphic design, camera work, editing, and other skills.  The New York facility opens in July.
