Adobe Foundation and Peapod Foundation Unveil New Youth Voices Academy in San Jose

by Cause Consulting

The Adobe Foundation in partnership with the Black Eyed Peas Peapod Foundation will open a new Peapod Adobe Youth Voices academy for San Jose youth. Building on the success of existing academies, the collaboration focuses on empowering underserved youth by making 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. The two foundations are providing a 3-year $300,000 grant to launch the program, which will serve approximately 300 youth ages 13 to 18 each year.
