About the Youth Motivation Task Force (YMTF) Program

Section 1 - Left

YMTF has become one of the most significant and exhilarating programs provided for UAPB students with the goal of encouraging them to take full advantage of the benefits available, give guidance on how to succeed in their careers, and look at life in the real world of work through the experiences of seasoned professionals. Several consultants representing the private sector, government agencies, and educational institutions will spend two and a half days on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. The consultants will speak to students in classrooms, present panel discussions, conduct a “rap” and one-on-one sessions to help prepare students for success in the classroom as well as in the workplace. More than sixty students were selected to serve as student liaisons, program participants and ushers.

The Youth Motivation Task (YMTF) Program is sponsored by the Office of Career Services at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. For additional information, call (870) 575-8461.

About MC Lyte

Section 2 - Left

Lyricist, inspirational speaker, DJ, pioneer, icon, veteran and entrepreneur describe one of the most prolific and well-respected female Hip Hop artists of all time: MC Lyte. She has consistently found ways to reinvent herself musically, while expanding her resume and gaining new fans. Reared in Brooklyn, New York, MC Lyte always has her finger on Hip Hop’s pulse. Many are familiar with her stellar music making skills, but over the course of her extensive career, MC Lyte has ventured out to other avenues that have allowed her to show the world just how talented she truly is.

A pioneer in the industry, she opened the door for future female Hip Hop artists by daring to do what had never been done while doing something she loved. MC Lyte is the FIRST rap artist ever to perform at New York’s historic Carnegie Hall, the FIRST female rapper to ever receive a gold single, the FIRST female solo rapper ever nominated for a Grammy and in 2006, MC Lyte became the FIRST solo female rapper to be honored/inducted on VH-1’s HIP HOP HONORS.

MC Lyte has graced network television as well as the big screen and she has been the voice behind the VH-1’s Hip Hop Honors and national campaigns for Wherehouse Music, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Nike.

A role model to women and respected by men everywhere, MC Lyte never compromises who she is and consistently displays that a woman can turn heads fully clothed! Whenever possible, MC Lyte enjoys traveling across the nation to use her expertise and story of success to motivate others to take ownership of the world around them while striving to be the best they can possibly be.
