Why we are different

Our staff are engaged with the youth community directly, filling a vital role in their lives. We have successful programming and have developed strong relationships with youth, with the school community including principals and teachers, and with the business community. Also, because of the level of trust we have built with youth, they are comfortable sharing their challenges with ROC staff in a safe space.

Volunteer and Lead

Have your say and be heard! Working together, we offer youth friendly events and recognition in everything we do. The staff at ROC are your allies.
