Lyricism 101
Lyricism 101 is a program designed to cultivate and amplify the powerful, formidable voices of Club teens
Recognizing the power of literary arts, Lyricism 101 positions Club members as torchbearers and experts in the ancient oral poetic traditions that continue to thrive around the world. The program gives teens an opportunity to tell their stories, build community and express their artistic visions through the music of hip-hop culture and the culture of the cipher.​

Thanks to the support from Sprite and Coca-Cola, Boys & Girls Clubs of America launched Lyricism 101, our first program devoted to teens, in 2016.
