About Us

Rock Solid takes a team. Maybe that team includes you. ​

In many respects, Rock Solid is a lot like a puzzle. When all the pieces are in place, it’s a beautiful thing: The youth are registered and signed in. There are organized games, sports and activities. Good food is served. There is a speaker or group program. Tutoring takes place. Although there is time to hang out, there are also scheduled structured activities throughout the afternoon.  Sadly, when some or most of the pieces are missing, it can become less like a youth center, and more like a babysitting service. In other words, Rock Solid isn’t Rock Solid without a team. Centers are encouraged to only open on days when you can offer a majority of services.
