In 2004, the young social worker, Tomas Alvarez founded his own non-profit, Beats Rhymes and Life, which uses rap therapy model. When Tomas was in his 20’s he got a job as a behavioral specialist for children and families in San Francisco. While in that job, he got a case that would normally last at least two years for improvements and it took him only four days.

Tomas Alvarez said “I became completely inspired with this idea that there are other ways of doing therapy, I was inspired to learn more and go back to school to get a BA in social work and then my master’s at the top clinical social work school in the nation. I knew I wanted to create a type of therapy especially for youth of color, because of lack of services.”
