Sixers Stixers Drumline Director keeps kids off the streets with after-school program

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- 76ers' Sixers Stixers Drill Team director Antoine Mapp is inspiring kids to march to the beat of a different drummer.

Mapp was recently named Artistic Drumline Director for Musicopia, an organization that helps fund after-school music programs to poverty-stricken areas.

Mapp also directs his own drill team, The West Powelton Steppers.

But the West Philadelphia native is providing more than just drum skills to his students, he mentors them and helps keep them safe and off the streets.
