Building Beats, a 501(c)(3) NYC based non-profit, and World Up, another NYC based non-profit, are joining forces for music and music technology education. The mission and work both organizations have achieved has resulted in thousands of youth opportunities to learn technology, entrepreneurial, and leadership skills through music production and DJ workshops.
By combining the resources, capacity, and talent of both organizations, Building Beats and World Up hope to provide an even larger impact on NYC youth and expand to other cities . The World Up brand, assets, and team will fold and translate into Building Beats team members, advisors, and supporters. All work and activities going forward will fall under the Building Beats brand.
The Executive Director of World Up , Ebenezer Bond, will serve as a director and advisor to the Building Beats team and Executive Director, Phi Pham. Together, they hope to cultivate Building Beats into a successful organization that develops and expands music and DJ programs for youth; teaching leadership, entrepreneurial, technology, and life skills. Through the convergence of both organizations, the combined creativity and drive will help engage the New York City community to develop future leaders in our youth, society, arts, and culture.
