Rock the Cause Campus
Through our partnerships with Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest, Achieve Minneapolis and Upward Bound, High School for Recording Arts, and educators across the region Rock the Cause has mentored over 2000 students on how they can make an impact in their communities.
We conduct in the classroom training on how to create a volunteer drive, concert event, or awareness for causes that are important to students. We help young people to become aware of how volunteerism can lead to college, a great job, and stronger communities.
In 2017 Rock the Cause received an NAACP Image Award Nomination Certificate for our collaboration with High School for Recording Arts on the song and video 'Royalty'.
Social Media and Community Engagement
Almost daily Rock the Cause is contacted by non-profits seeking help with getting their message out into the community. They recognize that Rock the Cause has the attention of a vibrant and engaged community of volunteer-minded people.
Our Social Media team works with nonprofits to get their message out there. We list their events and volunteer needs on our website. We broadcast the needs of the nonprofit seeking help across our ever-expanding social network. With the help of our media partners, we can reach thousands of people in a matter of moments.
Our Social Media team is comprised of student interns from across the region seeking a fun way to learn about marketing, and communication while making a difference. Giving them the job skills they need to bring value to the community and the workplace.
Music Can Change the World
Nothing brings people together like the power of music. Over the past 10 years Rock the Cause produced over 5 dozen concert events, of varying size, that supported the nonprofits and artists we work with.
We have created a platform for emerging artists to get their music heard while making a difference.
