2016-17 ROCK Program

The ROCK (Real Options for City Kids) program introduces students to challenging outdoor activities and meaningful community service work, in addition to the learning enrichment and sports programs. In the program, students form trusting relationships with adults, as well as learn the importance of giving back to their community.

Available every day and will be carried out in every activity for the first 30 minutes of program.
