Reimagining Education with Rappers & Corporate America
Jarren Small, Reading with a Rapper

We will explore creative ways to pursue change within the education system through unlikely partnerships. After founding ‘Reading with a Rapper’ – a venture that connects high school students with rappers to strengthen their English, language and arts skills – Jarren has gone on to start a variety of “side hustles” that are creating impact in his community. Learn how to build partnerships and connect different parts of your passions to form your own side hustle.
