About

Suneil Kamath will launch HEAL in Columbus, Ohio, to help empower at-risk youth in public schools through the art of hip-hop. Working with mentors screened and selected from local university music schools and programs, Suneil will bring classes of students through a two week program that includes music education, creating their own hip-hop song, and discussing and expressing their feelings through music. Students will make resolutions to achieve positive change at the end of the program. This venture seeks to use music and familiar art forms to connect with students and achieve more positive outcomes with them.
