Our Mission

Our mission is to utilize the arts to support youth and adults to enhance their cultural expression and become more critical about the world they live in, and the role they will play in shaping its future.

Our History

The Lyric Lab has been a program in the making for more than the past 15 years. The founder, Raymond Ramirez, has worked as a consultant for various arts programs and began using Hip Hop and recording students in the late 1990s. Working initially with S.C.A.N. NY (Supportive Children's Advocacy Network) at the JHS 99 Beacon Program in East Harlem, and at various schools for Teachers and Writers Collaborative throughout the city, the Hip Hop workshop was born. Over the years the name has changed until finally The Lyric Lab was established in the beginning of 2017.
