Afternoons Rock

Afternoon’s R.O.C.K. (Recreation, Object lessons, Culture and values, and Knowledge) is an after school prevention program involving recreation with education.

Each session deals with a different aspect of pressures our youth are facing coupled with the fun and excitement of a dodgeball tournament. The program is packed with exciting discussions, field trips, and recreation for all to enjoy.
