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.
