In 2008, the Mitrovica Rock School started as a project at the request of local musicians. The original Mitrovica Rock School project was managed by Musicians Without Borders and Community Building Mitrovica, with support from Fontys Rockacademie and IKV Pax Christi.
With support from the Matra program of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Mitrovica Rock School was able grow from a promising project to a successful organization, and in 2012 the Rock School registered as an independent NGO.
From 2018, Mitrovica Rock School has been part of a regional/international consortium under the project Music Connects, using rock music for social change region-wide.
In its 13 years of existence, some 1,400 youth have attended the Mitrovica Rock School. The school has produced 50 ethnically mixed bands, 25 of which wrote/write original songs.
