, or R.O.C.K. for short. R.O.C.K. is an award-winning organization providing positive opportunities for children and youth who need it the most.
With over 22 years of experience, R.O.C.K. has become the largest youth-serving organization in Visitacion Valley, a high violence, low-income community located in the Southeast sector of San Francisco. R.O.C.K.'s programs are designed to serve over 500 children ages 6-17 utilizing a proven youth development framework. R.O.C.K. provides sports and fitness, outdoor adventures, learning enrichment, community service and leadership training to a community lacking in resources. Through our partnership with R.O.C.K., we will have the opportunity to work directly with at-risk youth, volunteering with their team based sports clinics and outdoors adventure programs.
