Music is transformative. It can nurture essential life skills that help youth heal from trauma, graduate from school, pursue professional careers, foster healthy relationships, and build the self-efficacy to achieve their dreams. Yet, many young individuals in Philadelphia are denied access to these life-changing opportunities due to budget constraints and income disparities.
For over a decade, Rock to the Future has fought against inequality by supporting youth development and economic empowerment through free, student-driven music programs for youth in underresourced areas affected by poverty and violence. We use music as a bridge to provide essential educational, resource, and social-emotional support, enriching lives for the long term.
Our impact has been possible because of dedicated supporters like you who understand the power of music as a catalyst for change. Because of you, Rock to the Future has been able to affect the lives of over 1,100 students annually in schools, community locations, and the juvenile justice system! Our commitment to inclusivity and equitable access remains unwavering. We are counting on your support more than ever as we aim to deepen our services this year by increasing access, supporting peaceful communities, bolstering economic empowerment, and strengthening holistic wellness.
We invite you to join us in being an “instrument for change,” building brighter futures for young people who, through the transformative power of music, discover community, find their voices, and gain the opportunity to thrive!
