Empowering Youth to be all that they can be.

Our in-school programs are dedicated to cultivating wellness. The purpose of these programs is to provide mentorship with consistent mentoring from caring adults, building self-esteem and confidence, critical thinking skills, social connectedness and overall resiliency in participants. The programs are hosted in-school, during nutrition, with new opportunities offered at each session.

Youth Participation in Girls ROCk it! and GUYTIME Programs (for past 3 years)

School Locations

The past couple of years the ROC made me feel great inside because it was only (girls), so we could talk about anything. The last two years that I have been included in the ROC program at my school it has done a lot for me. It has inspired me in so many ways that you wouldn’t imagine.
