Pete Wentz, Brendon Urie and Mike Dirnt join Fender Play Foundation to support youth music education

ABC/Randy HolmesFall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie and Green Day's Mike Dirnt have thrown their support behind historic guitar company Fender, and will serve as artist ambassadors for its newly instituted Fender Play Foundation.

The foundation aims to support youth music education by providing gear for schools and other educational institutions, as well as offering music instruction, both in-person and online.

The artist ambassadors will engage with kids via meet and greets, donating signed merchandise to the cause, and offering insight into ways the foundation can better serve youth.

The program will launch in three cities where Fender has offices -- Los Angeles, Nashville and Scottsdale, Arizona -- and is expected to expand next year. 

Other participating artists include Avril Lavigne and country stars Chris Stapleton and Ashley McBryde.
