According to reports by several international news sites, Black Eyed Peas announced Tuesday that their Peapod Foundation, together with the Adobe Foundation will open a Peapod Adobe Youth Voices music and multimedia academy in lower Manhattan.

Expanding the network of Peapod Adobe Youth Voices academies enables us to pay it forward, giving more youth the skills and encouragement they need to realize their dreams.”

The academy will be housed in a facility being managed by Urban Arts Partnership, which runs after-school arts programs for teens who attend high-poverty schools.
