COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT & YOUTH EDUCATION
Quincy has been involved in youth education work since 2011, visiting High-schools, treatment centers and lock down facilities as a speaker, workshop leader and part-time teacher. His experience, motivation and connection with the youth stems from his love for the artform of Hip-hop production and songwriting as a much-needed outlet during his upbringing while dealing with isolation and depression, through the trials and tribulations of delinquency and a self-destructive lifestyle.
In 2016, he teamed up with friends and fellow hip hop artists/educators Talilo Marfil and Jesse The Emagyner to form Cypher CURE, a youth/community-based non-profit providing a positive environment for youth to express themselves and explore their gifts.
With the 2020 release of his latest project Rebel Wise, Quincy and his creative partner Mic Crenshaw have been leading virtual workshops for High School and Middle School students in the Portland area.
Below are some highlights of Quincy's community work based in the Portland and traveling around the world, as an organizer, guest presenter, workshop leader and teacher of Hip-hop songwriting / production / recording / filmmaking.
