About Us


Downtown ROCs! is a 501(c)(3) Community Development Corporation that creates economic opportunities for youth in the city, while simultaneously adding beauty and energy to Downtown Rochester. We accomplish this mission through our Projects that ROC!, which are brought to life thanks to the hard work of our amazing ROCstars.

By donating to Downtown ROCs! you help fund specific projects that add vibrancy to the center city, while simultaneously creating opportunities for young adults to develop valuable professional and personal skills, helping build our next generation of community leaders.

It is the ultimate WIN-WIN… for our youth and our city!



Mike Gilbert is the Founder and Executive Director of Downtown ROCs!
