Atlanta artist TI is the first officially confirmed artist for the New York Boost Mobile RockCorps event. More surprise artists are yet to be confirmed, but TI sets the level which the event is aiming at.
RockCorps is an organization that harnesses the power of music to
inspire volunteerism. Based on the early work of The Greenbucks
Foundation, RockCorps was founded in 2003 to affect social change and act as the bridge between communities in need and the young adults who want to make them better. RockCorps' goals are to introduce volunteerism to teens and young adults, motivate people to volunteer in their community and launch a national movement. The company has formulated a unique blend of music, community and volunteerism to expose young people to simple ways they can proactively contribute to the greater good. The program employs music as an incentive to entice and then funnel volunteers through established non-profit organizations. By completing four hours of community service, each participant receives a ticket to a signature RockCorps event which features performances by some of the hottest names in music. Experience shows that after volunteering once with RockCorps, young people are twice as likely to do it again.
