The Kanye West Foundation, which works to encourage today’s youth to stay in school. One of Foundation’s first initiatives is the Loop Dreams Teacher Training Institute, which is slated to open in Chicago in Spring 2008.

The Institute will provide training to Chicago Public School teachers who are interested in using hip-hop music in their curriculum in an effort to promote literacy and motivate youth to stay in school.

“Kanye is committed to excellence through education and established ‘Loop Dreams’ as the first and signature initiative of his foundation,” Kanye’s mother, Dr. Donda West said.
