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.
Youth ROCK is a faith-based organization that offers area youth the opportunity to discover Rock County and involve themselves in a leadership development program while completing community service projects throughout the Rock County area. Our team is assisting in securing additional sponsors for supplies, projects, and funds. This will enable the organization to attain their current goal of doubling their numbers and their commitment to community services they are able to provide. In increasing the network of resources, we are also laying the groundwork for the long-term goal of an additional week of leadership development. This will include leadership exercises with community mentoring for past participants prior to the week of work. The sense of accomplishment, self-discovery, and comradery will live with these youth, and support Rock County, for a lifetime.
