3rd Annual Climbathon
A team for Rocktown Youth Mentoring
"3rd Annual Climbathon" a team to help the Rocktown Youth Mentoring...
Today a child in Oklahoma City is scared to go to school where she’s bullied; scared to walk home where he may get jumped; scared to be home where she is experiencing abuse and neglect. Today in Oklahoma City a child is experiencing lifelong hunger. Today in Oklahoma City over 64,000 children live in poverty.
Rocktown Youth Mentoring's mission is to serve youth by cultivating character through mentoring and adventure.
Through our afterschool experiential program we serve over 100 at- risk children a week. We provide a safe place for children to build safe relationships with their mentors and provide a healthy meal for children who may not otherwise get one today. Because ,when youth have a caring, invested, consistent adult, they are 50% more likely than their peers who lack that relationship to avoid drugs, gangs, and to overcome the typical struggles that face their community and to press on and be successful. It takes just one caring adult. Just one.
Today Oklahoma is one of only 14 states that does not fund afterschool programs. The impact is felt in our communities;
Rocktown Youth Mentoring is committed to changing these outcomes.
Your support enables us to impact the lives of children, by providing them with a consistent, caring adult.
