What Is FOHTA?

From One Hand To AnOTHER (FOHTA) is a 501 C3 Not for Profit Foundation established by Pharrell Williams for the sole purpose of supporting the Pharrell Williams Resource Centers' (PWRC) learning programs developed for every one of the underserved youth between the ages of 7 and 20 in at risk communities throughout the country.

FOHTA’s mission is to “Change the world one kid at a time by providing them the tools and resources to meet their unique potential.” The vision of the center is to modernize the community center concept by empowering kids to learn through new technologies, arts, and media.

Our vision can be implemented wherever children safely assemble. Programs and services are already engaging Virginia Beach children within a network of virtual centers in the city’s schools, churches and parks & recreation facilities.

The Pharrell Williams Resource Center (PWRC) in VA Beach, VA is the first in a series of Pharrell Williams Learning Facilities that will provide educational S.T.E.A.M.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, and Motivation) related tools needed for the future success of children. We deliver, in technologically enhanced community centers, Project Based Learning activities, tutoring, and life coaching and motivation lessons to complete the education our children need to compete globally and keep our economy strong. Beginning in Virginia Beach and ultimately reaching thousands of children across this nation; FOHTA is dedicated, with the help of our corporate and educational partners, to the development of a prepared workforce and the future leaders of America. The Pharrell Williams Resource Centers will demonstrate We Can Create Our Own Future!
