Rock Star Supply Co. improves educational outcomes for under-resourced students by providing a variety of programming to TC public schools.

Drop your jaw, scratch your head, tug at your beard (real or imaginary), it’s true: Minnesota has the second highest achievement gap nationwide.

Appalled? We were too. Inspired to take action, we launched Rock Star Supply Co. in 2009. RSSCO. is a nonprofit organization that improves educational outcomes for at-risk teens by engaging local college students and fun professionals in our tutoring program. We believe anyone who wants to change a teen’s life is a rock star, and for the past three years, we’ve supplied those individuals to Twin Cities high schools.

Rock Star Supply Co. improves educational outcomes for under-resourced students by providing a variety of programming to Twin Cities public school students.

As many of you know, 2013 has been a big year for RSS Co. Since last November we have:

+ hired a full-time Executive Director

+ opened and furnished our brand new Rock Star Supply Co. Headquarters, which is open Mon-Thurs for FREE homework help

+ offered ten writing workshop sessions with Twin Cities authors

+ recruited over 60 tutors to work with 700 students at Roosevelt, Como and Wellstone School

+ hosted over ten outreach and educational events for the Twin Cities community in our new space


But we need your help to deepen our impact in Twin Cities schools. Please donate today!

Word on the street:

“I have seen firsthand how meaningful individual and small group support from tutors with RSS Co. has been to my students. It’s made a big difference!”
— Ben W. Rengstorf, English Language Teacher, Roosevelt High Scool

“The Rock Star volunteers saved my sanity last year with my two freshmen classes. Having extra adults in the room was tremendously helpful in keeping students on task and out of trouble.”
— Nancy P. Carpenter, Mathematics Instructor, Como Park Senior High

“The Rock Stars helped me bring my grades up [last year]...They made homework fun.”
— Maria, 16-years-old

"[Rock Stars] are really friendly. They weren't just like Well, can I help you? No! They wanted to get to know you. They wanted to see how you were doing and learn what else you're into...I even got life lessons from them."
— Rachel, 17-years-old
