Performing Arts for Inner City

Underserved Communities

HIPPOLife provides performing arts programs and scholarship opportunities for people from underserved communities and inner cities.

 Including ex-convicts, former gang members, recovering addicts, victims of domestic violence, and those without proper education opportunities.

"Rehabilitation Through the Arts"

Annual Program Details:

  • Annual 12-week Program

  • Up to 20 attendees per session

  • Each Program will consist of Performing Arts Training, a Professional Writer's Lab and Director's Lab

  • Each program culminates in a "making of" documentary (documenting each participants progress and growth) and an original self produced film. 

In partnership with Homeboy Industries, HIPPOLife gives those from underserved communities the opportunity to rehabilitate through the arts.

To qualify, individuals must be drug free, employed, and must no longer belong to a gang.

Donations for this program help provide us with a 'home' to host these classes and help to pay for the voice and performance instructors.

Scholarships: Ongoing Performing Arts Education

Through continued arts education, the formerly incarcerated, recovering addicts, and former gang members can learn the process of rehabilitating through the arts. HIPPOLife's scholarship program is based on this belief and mission.


Richard Cabral, Emmy-Nominated Actor, is one of the program's many success stories and is now a scholarship sponsor.


A donation of $1500 sponsors one student for 6 months, or $3000 covers a full year.
