Participating educators and program managers perform original raps at the Fresh Prep Institute series.

The first Fresh Prep Institute was a huge success, with over 40 participants attending the two-day professional development series. Educators and program managers came from all over the tri-state area and as far away as Ohio to the UAP offices in SoHo. During the institute, educators and program managers learned how to use hip-hop as a means of helping students prepare for and retain content tested on the New York State Global and U.S. Regents exams. Participants were also given the opportunity to write and perform their own raps!
One participant described the Institute as unlike any other professional development session she had ever attended – an interactive “think tank” instead of the usual lecture.
Thank you to all of our attendees and congratulations to the Fresh Prep team!
