River Rock Academy Partnership Invests in Teens

River Rock Academy is the premier provider of customized alternative education services for students in Central PA. Its mission is to provide students with the power to change, affect, and improve their lives. The group generously offers four of its students from its Red Lion, Pa., campus to clean 18 South Youth Center each week during the school year. In return, these students are allowed to attend the center for free during its open door nights.

PTC Youth Services and 18 South Youth Center are proud and grateful to begin the third school year of this partnership, which brings the opportunity for multiple touch points with these at-risk teens. They are taught the importance of giving back to the community by volunteering locally, and they also are encouraged to attend the center, where they will have the opportunity to be influenced by responsible, caring adult mentors. It’s a win-win situation.

The academy’s mission and dedication to pouring into teenagers in need seamlessly coincides with that of 18 South Youth Center. Recently, one of our longest-term visitors from 18 South informed us that he’s now attending River Rock. He told one of our volunteers that he loves it and finally has a school he likes.
