The Black Eyed Peas Peapod Foundation and the Adobe Foundation will launch a new Peapod Adobe Youth Voices music and multimedia academy in New York City. Building on the success of existing academies in Oakland, Los Angeles and Redwood City, Calif., the collaboration between the two non-profit foundations focuses on empowering underserved youth.

 

The academies make leading technologies available for art, dance, music and video production which, in turn, nurture self-expression, creativity, community involvement and digital literacy among young people.
