Rose from Concrete
Rose from Concrete (RfC) is a program that provides leadership development, resource referral, education, and job skills to court-involved youth in Greater Boston.
The goal is provide young people with education and resources to actively work for social change. RfC is a weekly leadership group that serves young men and women ages 14-18 who are court-involved or have been involved with the criminal justice system.
RfC's approach is to use the young people's hands-on knowledge of the juvenile justice system as a spring-board to develop youth leadership skills. We help provide an opportunity to heal their anger and frustration, access to educational resources, leadership skills, and help realizing their personal and community power by finding their social, political, and person identities.
