Kanye West has launched a music program for at-risk youth in Chicago’s South Side. Through his Donda’s House non-profit, the Chicago rapper teamed up with St. Sabina Church for “Got Bars?”, which will teach people age 15-24 how to write and record music over a 10-week course.

“Art instruction and particularly music instruction leads people to become better problem solvers, more flexible,” Donda’s House Executive Director Donnie Smith said. Longtime Kanye collaborator Rhymefest will be one of the instructors for the program.
