Internships in the Now
🚨 $5 Dollar Challenge 🚨 Today you can become a Hero 🦸🏽♀️🦸🏾♂️ in the life of a young adult. In a city that is ranked 2nd in the safest places to live and 100 being the safest. Real action has to take place and Lyrik’s Institute isn’t naive to the fact that you can’t make social change with information alone. We know that there is an economic component that has to be addressed. So we created, “Internships in the Now!” A year long series that offers young adults from 14 to 25 and chance to get employment, certifications, and hands on experience. Along side learning social emotional skills, goal and process setting and resume building. We have the curriculum and partners to bring this to life but transportation is are biggest issue. We want to make sure students can make it to the courses and complete them but attendance is an issue based on TRANSPORTATION! Join us on this campaign to raise $26,000 dollars so we can purchase adequate transportation for our young adults. Any amount will push us into success because you’re not alone in your giving. It’s going to take a village to produce the change we want in our city and this is one of the many ways we can do it. Become a Change Agent Today!!!

Lyrik's Institution 2021 Gala - Facebook Live
Lyrik's Institution's Summer in the City is not just any summer program, you don't believe us, come see for yourself. We have taken teens from all across the city through a 6-week behavior modification-based program and then allowed them to intern with some of the leading creative arts programs in the city. They have had the chance to intern at the Kansas City Art Institute, Digital Marketing with Evolving Digital Marketing, and Recording Engineering with Grammy Nominated Jo Blaq with The Distrkct. Now, we are turning the GEM Theater into a creative art gallery, where these amazing young adults will have a chance to show off their creative genius. That's not all, we are having our first ever graduation! Come out to hear live testimonials, view videos, and pictures from this amazing summer, and hear from special guest speakers from influencers in our community. Registration is easy, just a couple of clicks, and you're done. Tap the link and we'll see you there.
Welcome to Power Moves: The Tour Pt. 3!
Welcome to Power Moves: The Tour Pt. 3! Some of the choices we make aren't right or wrong, they are just choices. When this is the case, it's about making an effective choice. It's about making The Power Move! Part 3 took place at iWerx on 1520 Clay St, North Kansas City, MO, 64116. Saturday, June 26, 2021, from 9am to 6pm. "We want to bring these tools so it will give them something to think about before they're sitting in front of a judge facing 35 years, 40 years, and even life,” Hollins said. Using social media and small-group discussion, Lyrik's Institution takes “heady information” and presents it in a way that fits the youth in attendance, according to Hollins."
🎥🎥🎥 A clip of Kyle Hollins teaching on the power that young adults have in the inner city from surviving. Social intelligence is still intelligence. You can always learn or get a scholastic education but real survival is perfected with time and experience. They have been doing it all their lives and don’t even know it. Lyriks is here to point it out and let them know they are no where near close to normal, and it isn’t destructive, but powerful when incorporated with knowledge and wisdom… Summer in the city is a whole movie… #lyriks #intentionalliving #powermoves
