We exist to reduce stigma and increase access for youth of color and other marginalized youth, seeking therapeutic services. There is a general distrust of systems of care because of the lack of diversity and the lack of culturally-congruent, strength-based and youth-centered service models.


Beats Rhymes and Life (BRL) is a community-based organization that grew in response to a critical need for therapeutic programs designed specifically to serve boys and young men of color who as a group demonstrate some of the greatest health and social disparities.
