SIZZLA YOUTH FOUNDATION

To unite, empower, uplift, educate, and motivate the world’s future leaders.

The Sizzla Youth Foundation was founded by the international reggae icon Sizzla Kalonji. This organization has partnered with the University of West Indies, Social Development Commission, Citizen Security Justice Program, Project Management Institute and the August Town & Halfway Tree Police on several projects. These collaborative efforts are to elevate the spirits and station of young people. The main goal is to empower youth so they may be able to walk in higher social consciousness so they can contribute to society.

The Sizzla Youth Foundation encourages mental emancipation, preservation of heritage, economic freedom for Jamaica’s youth and their communities through education and activism.

While also promoting a historical and cultural understanding of the communities history in liberation and freedom, also studying language arts and indigenous cultures.

Sizzla's message is, "No crime, no violence…education is the key. Stay in school. Africa!"
