Deezer has announced a partnership with RockCorps, an initiative that rewards young people for voluntary work in their community.
Through RockCorps, young people can earn exclusive music tickets and offers for proactively contributing to their communities.
The Deezer partnership will offer a three-month gift account and the ability to try unlimited music, anytime, anywhere for 15 days to RockCorps competition winners who give four hours of their time to community service.
The partnership will also see the launch of the RockCorps Radio Channel, featuring tracks from acts that have appeared at RockCorps gigs over the past six years - from Maroon 5 and Lady Gaga to The Smashing Pumpkins and Snoop Dogg.
The radio channel will be available on both the Deezer website and apps, as well as the RockCorps homepage and will play music instantly, directly from the page with no need to open a separate tab or requiring the user to download any software.
“RockCorps uses the power of music to inspire people to volunteer and give to their community so we could not think of a better youth initiative to partner with,” said Deezer UK and Ireland MD Mark Foster. “We’re thrilled to be able to reward these inspirational young people with the unifying gift of music”.
Stephen Greene, RockCorps Co-Founder & CEO added: “We are excited to announce our partnership with Deezer. Deezer gets music - it was a natural linkup - like meeting someone for the first time you know will be a friend.
“It's a great fit for us to be working to move a generation through music and doing good for your community. We've worked with so many amazing artists over the years and now Deezer gives us the opportunity to introduce even more people to the RockCorps sound!"
