He served on the Board for Critical Breakdown - one of Boston's biggest and longest running all-age open mics - and has done workshops on the history of hip hop as well as creative writing and performance. Corey studied for two years at Massachusetts Communication College and has completed many BEST Initiative youth worker trainings, including the Advanced Youth Workers Certificate program.
