Session Description TBD

“The Cost of Prosperity in Florida:  Data and Opportunities from the Prosperity Now Scorecard”
Holden Weisman
Associate Director, Policy
Prosperity NOW

This session will dive into what the Prosperity Now Scorecard reveals about the state of economic opportunities and disparities before the COVID crisis emerged, the cost of living in Florida, and how these factors set the stage for the ways different communities experience the fallout of financial crises and potential for recovery.  Through an interactive discussion, we will also explore the ways states around the country are addressing these challenges through policies, how these policies could look in Florida, and what might be possible in the 2021 legislative session or beyond.

“How HAPCO is Changing the Lives of Young Performers”
Joseph Patrick Hap McMullen
Founder/President and CEO
HAPCO Music Foundation 

In this brief interview, Founder and Chairman of HAPCO Music Foundation, Joseph Patrick “Hap” McMullen, will share the history, accomplishments and the future for the HAPCO movement, now in its 21st year of serving youth in the arts.  You may be inspired to engage HAPCO’s performers in a future event, or further support the HAPCO movement!

“Building an Equitable Economy for ALL, with Change Machine”
Megan Kursik
Director of Business Development
Change Machine 

The vision of Change Machine as an organization reflects the future we see us building together.  Financial technology and public policies have the potential to accelerate financial security and help close the gender and racial wealth gap.  To harness this power, tech and policy solutions must be inclusive and equitable to low-income communities.  In this session, we will explore how to lift up voices across the country, to exemplify what togetherness can mean, and to break barriers through education, empathy and radical policy change. 

“CPFinCap:  Leading-Edge Professional Certification in the 21st Century”

About HAPCO Music Foundation and HAPCO Music*Youth*Arts

Celebrating 20 Years . . . Our students show through their work the beauty of the spirit of unity and the power of music and the arts.

HAPCO’s educational programs help disadvantaged young people in Florida, Georgia and Texas build their better futures. They use their musical, culinary and artistic talents to fund their college education or to pursue professional careers.

Programs are conducted in locations central to disadvantaged neighborhoods, connecting young people with industry professionals and giving them inroads into community networks. They encourage artistic expression, technique, business best practices and practical application. Our events are tailored to unite the communities we serve through the universal languages of music, food and art.

HAPCO programs are offered typically free of charge and are designed to empower growth and development in creative fields. Through our Kenneth R. Tolbert Scholarship Fund, we award scholarships to disadvantaged young people for fee-based programs including private lessons and summer jazz band camp.

HAPCO emphasizes paying it forward – we give students real-world experience and mentoring from university-level educators and industry professionals who they can relate to and learn from. The majority of our instructors have overcome economic and social challenges to forge a path of personal success. They come from a full range of generations, including first generation Florida Highwaymen, and share their stories of how they creatively persevered through socially-turbulent times. Many young people who benefited from our programs in middle and high school have graduated college and now serve as educators and mentors.

HAPCO Event Entertainment

HAPCO works with professional musicians and university educators to help young people build their better futures through their artistic, musical and culinary talents. Jeff Rupert, director of jazz studies at University of Central Florida, and Scott Wilson, director of jazz studies at University of Florida, are both long-time HAPCO program educators. Today, they will entertain us with live jazz performances from their programs’ faculty and students.
