Culture Shock San Diego tries to expose the power and beauty of hip-hop to all walks of life by contributing up to 3% of our total available tickets to community and educational non-profits that provide services to under served youth through direct donation or sponsorships. Some of these organizations are:
- Toussaint Academy of the Arts and Sciences
- Herrick Children’s Center
- Downtown Family YMCA
- San Diego Youth Services
- Hoover High School Arts Department
- Knox Prep—Special Education
Culture Shock® San Diego has made it part of our mandate to maintain a continuous connection with the youth and families of our respective communities. We do this by participating in community outreach programs, in which local youth are given the opportunity to attend hip-hop classes. The teens are also encouraged to contribute to the development of choreography, which helps them develop leadership skills that will enable them to become community leaders, and even instructors who can create their own hip-hop dance programs.
