Hip-Hop Heavyweight Fat Joe Helps Local Youth Renovate Latin American Montessori Bilingual School on Saturday, Aug. 6.

Boost Mobile RockCorps Volunteers Support Latin American Youth Center and Earn Tickets to WPGC's Labor Day Mix Off
WHO: Platinum-selling rap artist Fat Joe, Boost Mobile RockCorps
 - an "around the way revolution" that is empowering young
 adults with the motivation and resources necessary to create
 immediate, long-lasting improvements to communities in need.

WHAT: Boost Mobile RockCorps is combining the power of music,
 community and volunteerism to breed a new generation of
 volunteers. In exchange for contributing four hours of
 community service work at Boost Mobile RockCorps projects,
 youth volunteers will receive tickets to popular music
 concerts in their area. Boost Mobile RockCorps is
 partnering with non-profit agencies to organize 50 charity
 projects this summer offering young people the opportunity
 to get involved in various volunteer organizations and
 projects throughout the nation.

 The Boost Mobile RockCorps movement returns this weekend to
 Washington, D.C., after successful volunteer efforts in Los
 Angeles, Minneapolis, Arlington, Va., and Chicago. The
 weekend's event supports the Latin American Youth Center.
 Local youth-oriented radio stations are helping recruit
 Boost Mobile RockCorps volunteers and are awarding community
 service spots to lucky listeners. Selected volunteers who
 complete their four hours of community service at the
 designated projects will receive tickets, at no charge, to
 WPGC's Labor Day Mix Off on Sept. 5.
