The Black Eyed Peas unveiled a new facility in New York City aimed at helping kids learn about audio and video production.

The academy is funded by the group's Peapod Foundation as well as the Adobe Foundation.

The two foundations already run three similar academies in California.

The Manhattan facility offers classes to 150 specially selected teenagers starting in July.

The students will get to use professional-quality equipment.
