Roca has been privileged to meet thousands of young people since 1988. We have learned so much from each one of them. They have grown, developed and changed, and so has Roca.
Roca’s Intervention Model is designed to help high-risk young men leave streets and gangs and go to work. Through relentless outreach, tailored programming and collaboration with community partners, Roca helps young men transform their lives.
Roca’s mission is to disrupt the cycle of incarceration and poverty by helping young people transform their lives.
Theory of Change
Roca’s theory of change is that young people, when re‐engaged through positive and intensive relationships, can change their behaviors and develop life, education, and employment skills to disrupt the cycles of poverty and incarceration.
