Literacy Rocks!

Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.

Literacy Rocks!

Team On The Rocks had Clinton Middle Schoolers build six Little Free Libraries to place in various community areas throughout Rock County. (Example: One on Bluff Street, outside Family promise.) They held a book drive/book collection to help fill the libraries. Once installed and filled, they will have an unveiling for each one to make the community aware of their presence.
