Welcome to the Clear Creek Rock House
The Clear Creek Rock House is a dynamic youth out-reach in Clear Creek County that offers mentoring, tutoring and after-school activities to teens. A safe haven for kids! The Rock House provides guidance and support for teenagers while they learn and develop daily life skills and improve school grades. The Rock House also finds and provides social activities that are age appropriate for teenagers.
The Rock House is the only non-profit teen center in Clear Creek County. We have researched and implemented the best and most promising practices of similar programs from other counties and cities.
Clear Creek County is a beautiful mountain community of shady glades and easy access to ski resorts; however life nestled along the mountain corridor can be a challenging environment for teens. Of our grade school students alone, 52% are on free and reduced lunches. From 9th through 12th grade Clear Creek County schools have a 40% turn over rate during the four years of high school. Many parents and caretakers must work long hours in the nearby gaming and mining industries which can be challenging to the family environment. A significant number of families are transient which brings burdens that can be overwhelming to our communities youth. The Rock House provides kids a foundation of stability and positive influence where they can feel safe and flourish.
One of the students recently said . . . "I go to the Rock House every day and attend all of the different functions they provide. It keeps me off the streets, not doing drugs, and making alternative choices."
