about us

Beat the Odds is dedicated to serving under-resourced youth in Boston’s low-income communities through its Creative Youth Development Program. With the recent decline of funding for music and art programs in public schools, we aim to help fill that void by providing students with a unique opportunity to explore their creativity and unlock their hidden talents. Our mission is to provide a safe space, where young people will have access to the creative tools necessary to inspire self-awareness and encourage mental health and healing from trauma through music and arts. Beat the Odds is a proud member of the Hustlers Guild Small and Strong non-profit coaLITion.

PROGRAMS

ARTIST
DEVELOPMENT

Our artist development program is designed to give our talented youth participants a unique opportunity to develop their brand and creative portfolios. Through the creative process we engage our youth by equipping them with the knowledge, tools and mentorship needed to hone their craft and establish themselves as professional independent artist.  

MUSIC
PRODUCTION

Our music production program allows participants to have a hands-on experience learning the ins and outs of modern music production. Students are able to unlock and express their creativity through the use of the latest digital audio workstation and technology.

DANCE & PERFORMING ARTS
Our dance and performing arts program gives youth participants the ability to learn how to create their own choreography and put together a show. We help guide the students while they tune into themselves and learn how to express themselves through dance. 

MARATHON
MONDAY

Marathon Monday is a weekly empowerment group that creates a brave space for our program participants to have honest conversations about subjects such as, Mental Health Awareness, Self Love, Healthy Relationships, Financial Literacy, Job Readiness, College Prep, Community Violence and much more.
