Rock the Cause Campus
Through our partnerships with Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest. and educators across the region Rock the Cause has mentored nearly 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.
The level of engagement my students had with Rock the Cause was amazing! I have never seen an organization reach young people like Rock the Cause. My students were excited and empowered to make a difference in their community. The life lessons they learned are priceless.
