The Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy was founded in 2011 by grant from The Black Eyed Peas and the Adobe Foundation. The Academy is a program for high school students that is rooted in social-justice and designed as a space for advanced art programs, leadership development, and academic excellence. The Academy’s mission is to promote the intellectual, social and artistic development of underserved public school students and close the achievement gap by delivering cutting-edge arts programs designed to develop student voice, strengthen academic performance and position graduates as agents of change in their communities.
