It will get better.

That's the message HOJA wants to tell all kids going through hard times.

"You can find people, they're everywhere, who can help you, who will help you, who want to help you," said Matt Deroche, bass vocals for HOJA, a Canadian accapella group.

Deroche, along with Jessie Froese and Dave Yurkewick, will be performing for Weyburn students on Thursday.

Their goal is to not only encouraging young people to follow their dreams but to also standup for what you believe in and to standup against bullying.

"A lot of kids will come up to us after a show and share their experiences and look to us as more than just musicians," said Yurkewick.

Froese added that it's a humbling experience having kids be so receptive to their shows and to be entertained.

"And to know that you're making a difference is amazing," said Deroche.
