The KL strategic plan is focused on the quality and breadth of our programs. We are beginning to facilitate a path of participation for KL alumni. The AS I AM Alumni Initiative was conceived out of an identified need expressed by KL alumni ages 17-26 in an assessment conducted in 2014-15, the goal of the initiative is to strengthen both interpersonal relationships and professional opportunities for KL Alumni. The AS I AM Alumni Initiative deepens KL’s existing Hip Hop Arts program continuum by developing a framework that provides KL alumni and affiliates transitional opportunities to instruct and or administer programs, receive professional development & training, and present their artistic works professionally.
