UPDATE: VERT & the Pepsi Refresh Project

The Pepsi Refresh Project has officially come to an end for Youth Movement Records (YMR) and Hood Games’ idea, VERT. Unfortunately, after 2 rounds of participation, we were not able to make it to the Top 10 of our category to win the $25,000 grant from Pepsi for our idea. We’d like to thank all those that supported us during the contest by voting or allowing us to vote on your behalf. It was your support and dedication that kept us in the running. But just because it didn't work out this time around, doesn’t mean VERT still won’t happen! It just means that we’ll have to find another way to raise the money to make it happen.

Project VERT: The Final Stretch

VERT is a potential collaboration between Youth Movement Records and Hood Games. VERT is up to win a $25k grant from Pepsi in order to create a skate & multimedia arts events series for the youth in Oakland. We hope that these events can help position us to find a long-term venue for young people to engage in fun, safe, activities when not in school. We envision our big goal as an indoor skate park and performance venue that caters to the youth in the Bay that are consistently left out of music and places to hang out because they haven't reached the age of 21. Watch our video below and see refresheverything.com/vert for more info!
