How it all started...
We started as 7 friends around a pasta dinner in Los Angeles, California.
Inspired by the aftermath of 9/11, we, like many others, felt this was a great time for people to pull together, get to know each other, build neighborhoods and have fun doing it.
We wanted to figure out a way to work with brands that would channel the power of music and celebrity towards making volunteering a part of youth lifestyle – just like sports, music, fashion and gaming.
Creating an inclusive model was hugely important - everyone can give their time and so the concept of Give, Get Given was born.
As RockCorps continues in cities throughout the world, connecting with youth to make volunteering fashionable, we are reminded of how core and universal the desire to give back and have fun really are. That's what gets us out of bed in the morning….but not too early.
