T.I. & Young Jeezy Perform For NYC Youth Volunteers

ImageRockCorps and Boost Mobile have partnered to put on a concert for youth volunteers featuring T.I., Young Jeezy, Fabolous, Don Omar, and others at NYC's Radio City Music Hall.

The exclusive event will be hosted by Nick Cannon and is set to take place on September 23rd.

The concert will reward and recognize over 5,000 local youth who have volunteered their time through such programs as environmental initiatives, playground renovations and food distributions associated with the RockCorps organization.

Founded in 2003, the organization uses music as an incentive for young people to become active in their communities and offers entry to various concerts in exchange for at least four hours of community service.

Other acts such as Panic! At the Disco and Taking Back Sunday are also scheduled to perform.

Previous to the NYC concert, the Boost Mobile RockCorps program also made stops in cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Houston, Washington D.C. and Minneapolis/St. Paul in an effort to further rally volunteers.

Other hip-hop acts such as Ghostface Killah and Rick Ross have performed in past RockCorps performances. This summer alone, the volunteers would have completed approximately 40,000 hours of community service and transformed close to 125 project sites in eight cities across the country.
