The ROCK Youth Center would like to welcome you and your child to our facility. To ensure that your child gets the most out of our programs, we would like for you to take a moment, along with your child, to briefly read over some of our facility and program rules, regulations and code of conduct. These guidelines are designed to inform parents/guardians and participants of the ROCK Youth Center what is expected of them while they are at the after-school program.
