Be a ROCstar™
Downtown ROCs! combines two incredible missions into one: beautifying our city and creating leadership opportunities for youth in the community.
To accomplish both these goals, we’ve created a program that engages young adults (ages 15-19) in our many Projects that ROC!. This program offers an opportunity for motivated, community-minded teens to learn valuable career and personal skills, while earning a modest stipend for their time and efforts.
These future leaders are our Downtown ROCstars, and they are the lifeblood of the Downtown ROCs! initiative.
Downtown ROCstars go through a brief orientation process before hitting the streets (literally). From there they continue to receive skills and leadership training to enhance their abilities and better prepare them for their future pursuits.
The ROCstar program is headed by Downtown ROCs! Executive Director Mike Gilbert, who has over 25 years of experience working with and coaching young adults.
If YOU would like to be a ROCstar, give us a call at 585-370-5919. But you must call; there is no online application and we do not accept email inquiries for this opportunity. Why? Because we are looking for leaders, and this requirement is the first step in the process of determining who has "the right stuff" to thrive in this leadership development program.
If you would like to participate in a Downtown ROCs! project, please connect with us today! You can also help support our mission with a 100% tax-deductible donation. Thank you for your support!!
