What Others Are Saying
During the Girls Roc it program, I got to spend time with the girls my age. We learned a lot about each other, which made a lot of us closer than we were before the program. We were always brought healthy foods, and we got to do many fun activities, and went on a girls overnight trip at the end of the program. Every time I’d walk into our room, or on the overnight trip, there was always laughs, never a dull moment. We had great leaders who were always happy to see us, and would always make us laugh. I’m very glad I was able to be a part of the Girls Roc it program, and I’m so glad we have it here in Picton!
The ROC program has been an amazing experience for both my sister and I. We’ve both built amazing relationships with adults and our peers which we know will be forever lasting! The Kids in Motion program provided by clubROC gave us the opportunity to participate in recreational sports which we may have not been able to other wise, because the ROC is free of charge. We have been skating, swimming, snowshoeing and learned martial arts. In the summer we went on a hiking and camping overnight trip that was incredible. This is just one of the many great opportunities that ROC has provided for us. We are thrilled to continue our participation with clubROC as junior youth leaders for years to come 🙂
As a Child and Youth Counsellor with the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, I wish to express my gratitude in the working partnership we have with The ROC. The engaging in school programs geared to support healthy minds, healthy choices have our students excited and asking for more.
Over the course of the program participants frequently form close, trusting relationships with group leaders. These relationships can play a vital role in a young person’s development. On separate occasions students have come forward and made personal disclosers to their leaders, which has provided the opportunities to find appropriate supports to address their needs.
I’m involved with many of these students and with the ROC’s commitment to youth we have been able to expand the supports for these kids.
I look forward to an ongoing partnership with the ROC for many years to come.
