Since 2010, Rock to the Future has grown from serving 13 students as a volunteer organization to now hundreds of youth annually in Philadelphia. We greatly appreciate your support all of these years and have worked hard use the donations we receive to build community alongside talented youth and community partners. 

No matter where you are from or your experiences, the struggles of life are real. It's hard to express yourself, to feel connected and accepted, to have confidence, and to love yourself.  Music has the incredible power to uplift the spirit, connect people, and bring you to a space where you can build positive relationships. 

We think of all of the amazing experiences we had throughout childhood and adulthood because of our access to music. A reason to attend school, a way to make friends, a safe place to stay out of trouble, expression through original songwriting, a place to build skills and feel pride. 

This opportunity should be available for all youth -- but it's not because of financial barriers. Because of systemic inequalities and lack of funding, most children in Philadelphia do not have the chance to participate in music programs and the benefits of music, creating a huge gap in vital childhood building blocks. 

That's where Rock to the Future comes in. Giving children an opportunity to create, to express themselves, to build friendships, to build pride and confidence, to feel accepted in a safe place, to empower youth to be the best they can. And to provide this experience at no cost, with no prior experience needed, and providing all instruments and supplies.

The magic of music can change lives and any child who wishes to experiences the joys of music should have the opportunity. Will you help provide this opportunity for hundreds of Philadelphia children and teens? $5, $10, $100 -- it all adds up and no donation is too small.

Thank you in advance!

With Love,

Story

Music education gives all students important tools to grow. Unfortunately, there is a music education gap in Philadelphia. It can be hard or impossible for families to find affordable music programs. That’s why we provide our innovative programs for free to all students. There are no auditions to join - we are many students’ first music class! Your support helps students rock in the classroom and at home!

Music is also a powerful outlet for emotion. Our virtual programs help students express their emotions in a healthy, creative way. Your support helps students relieve stress, connect with their peers, and express themselves in a supportive environment that fosters self-love.
