Roca’s mission is to disrupt the cycle of incarceration and poverty by helping young people transform their lives.

Roca’s job is to help young men and women get off the streets, stay out of jail, get good jobs, and create a better future for themselves. We believe that when we ask high-risk young people to make difficult changes in their own lives – to put down guns, to stop selling drugs, to show up at work on time, and become responsible adults – we too must have the courage to do things differently. We have learned that the only way forward is to focus on what works, to let go of what doesn’t, and to hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards possible.
