Don't Believe the Hype

The Students Commission (lead organization to the Centre of Excellence for Youth Engagement) is a national, charitable youth organization that works to provide, promote and support opportunities for young people from all walks of life to become meaningfully engaged in issues that directly affect them, their peers and their communities. The "Don't Believe the Hype" Hip-Hop program is one such opportunity developed by youth to address issues that are meaningful to them.

This program started as the vision of one young person and with the support of the Students Commission has developed into a two-term class curriculum for young people based around Hip-Hop.

If you want to know more about the Don't Believe the Hype program, or want to sign your school up, please contact Sharif Mahdy at 416-597-8297, or at info@studentscommission.ca in Toronto.
