Be Your Best Foundation

The Foundation produces the UK Rock Challenge, a performing arts experience for young people which benefits participants in a wide variety of ways, from increased self-esteem to improved school attendance, reduced use of tobacco, alcohol and other substances, improved relationships with teachers and even reduced anti-social behaviour in participating schools.

  • Mission statement

    The Rock Challenge is a drug-misuse and crime prevention vehicle in the form of a friendly performing arts competition for secondary schools. The focus of this friendly and vibrant competition is on young people leading healthy lifestyles and being their best without the need for tobacco, alcohol and illegal substances. The Rock Challenge is an effective means through which agencies with an interest in their local community can fulfil their responsibilities. The outcomes of the event support the strategies and aims of many initiatives and organisations concerned with the well being of young people.
    The Rock Challenge provides an established, structured and international response to recent government strategy, legislation and reports dealing with drug misuse and crime amongst young people. The event has grown to the extent that in 2018 the Rock Challenge tour includes 48 shows with 350 schools and 22,000 participants throughout England and Scotland.
