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.

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.

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!
