About Amplifying Education

DISPATCH’s Amplifying Education campaign is all about exploring how small actions can make a big difference in the lives of children throughout the world. Brad, Chad & Pete have always stood up and rallied their fans around causes that challenge the status quo. So when DISPATCH decided to hit the road again in 2011, they chose to focus on America’s education crisis through service.

Through DISPATCH’s last three tours, Amplifying Education has engaged over 750 fan volunteers in nearly 8,000 hours of service to improve schools across North America and Europe; brought 26 fans on the road for 3 Alternative Break Tours, where fan volunteers experience tour life for about a week serving at local schools during the day and running concert outreach before enjoying DISPATCH’s shows at night; collected over 12,000 book donations to support local literacy programs through Better World Books; and raised nearly $300,000 through a portion of ticket sales, benefit shows, and fan-to-fan outreach at shows to support local organizations like City Year Denver, Teach for America, The Waterside School, and the Crazy Horse School on Pine Ridge Native American Reservation.
