When is Sip & Savor Summer Series?
Who are we?
All About Caring Project, Inc. (AACP) is dedicated to helping students by providing ongoing support and services by promoting the success of continuing education. AACP provides an array of needs to youth in our community. They are dedicated to helping students in and around the District with leadership opportunities, education, job-skills training, and scholarships.
High tuition cost limits many youths in our community an affordable opportunity to access higher education and well-paying workforce opportunities. High prices and limited access, leave high school scholars and their families left with huge debt, or they cannot afford college altogether. Higher costs jeopardize those individual students but also affect black and brown communities and states, which increasingly rely on highly educated workforces to grow and thrive. That in combination with a lack of employment opportunities for our youth severely impacts District youth. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, “Career and Technical Education (CTE) Statistics, scholars who complete a bachelor’s degree have higher earnings, lower rates of unemployment and underemployment, lower rates of incarceration, and higher rates of civic engagement.
What are we going to have?
The event will feature live performances by Black Alley, P.R.O., & Dat Kid Wingz.
P.R.O., formerly known as Pro’Verb, is a legendary lyricist, songwriter, and musical anomaly from PG County, Maryland, who’s opened for the likes of Nas, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Devin the Dude, and Logic. He’s been featured in Complex Magazine (“10 New DMV Rappers to Watch Out For”), Hip Hop Weekly, Washington City Paper, and the Washington Post.
He’s also graced the stage at events such as Rock the Bells, SXSW, Red Bull MC Challenge, and A3C.His last project, “While You’re Waiting,” garnered critical recognition from industry peers and fans alike. His newest project dropped this past summer and was highly anticipated after 10 years of growth, transcendence, and new perspective. P.R.O., which stands for “Preparation Reaches Opportunity,” has the audacity to believe that we as a people are greater than our greatest obstacles. This belief translates seamlessly throughout his music, imploring us to aim higher and dream bigger.
