Where It All Began

The Whutever it Takes DJ Academy was founded by Cornell Yarbrough (DJ Whutever) in 2015 as an innovative education program that partners with community schools and organizations to create a high quality after-school learning experience for inner-city youth, and students grades 4-12.

The DJ Academy's after-school program purposefully pushes the integration of literacy and science, technology engineering & mathematics (STEM) into creative content that exposes students to a unique form of learning music, communication, and improvisation that can lead to several professions in the future.
