Loyalty Foundation & Fat Joe's UP NYC to teach kids AI!

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

In partnership with UP NYC, the sneaker and clothing stores owned by rap superstar Fat Joe, the Loyalty Foundation will teach about 20 Bronx kids grades 4-9 how to create their own dream sneaker using AI (Artificial Intelligence).

The class will be produced by our Director of Education, Allen Rabinovich as part of the UP NYC Masterclass program. At the end of the course, these super-sneakers will be displayed in a special VR (Virtual Reality) showroom for all to seen.

The forthcoming UP NYC Masterclass marks a return to UP NYC by Loyalty Foundation, which last summer brought our "Gaming & Coding for Youth" to the store's South Bronx location.

Details below. (We taught ourselves a little AI for this program flyer. Pretty cool!)
