Roca:  Boston, MA

Roca is targeting young people (ages 17-24) who are street, court, or gang involved, disengaged, unable to participate in other programs, and who have dropped out of school.

Roca’s work is based upon the theory that when young people are re-engaged through positive and intensive relationships they can gain competencies in life skills, education and employment that keep them out of prison move them toward living out of harm’s way and toward economic independence. Each component of Roca’s Intervention Model is designed to drive toward measurable, positive outcomes.
