Hawkins and The Lovin' Spoonful drummer Mike Arturi are mentors for the Turnaround Art School, which offers guidance through the school's journey program.

"Music I've heard it said before is its own gift I've had people come up to me and say what is it like to be a rockstar or whatever," said Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. "I'm like well that's just part of the job but really in actuality, the music is still the thing that's most the most enjoyable part and still the passion that drives me to get up and do it every day you know."

Riverside is one of 84 Turnaround Arts Schools across the country; with seven of them being in Minnesota.
