What people say

Lisa, 17 years old

Meeting new people and helping the community is something that I could never picture myself doing, but RockCorps helped me do it. I will never forget it.

Jon, 16 years old

You are doing something - you are like, wow, I am doing something actually for the country, you’re sat there thinking why this has not been done, and actually going out there and doing something. You do realize you have made some kind of difference.

Nick, 23 years old

A special thank you to all at RockCorps. It feels so much better to give something back. I hope the kids love the park's new make-over. The gig was fab!
