The City of San José is happy to announce the launch of our free Virtual Recreation of City Kids (R.O.C.K.) Afterschool Program. The Virtual R.O.C.K. Program is facilitated over Zoom by trusted and trained recreation leaders.
Since April 20, over 260 participants meet via Zoom with their recreational leaders to socially connect during shelter-in-place at home.
Students have the opportunity to participate in engaging and fun activities, such as digital team-building games, fitness challenges, and literacy project.
Often times, parents join in on the fun of activities and games, allowing staff to reconnect not only with the youth but their parents as well.
All team members are trained and certified employees of the City of San Jose and are from either your child's school or another R.O.C.K. Program.
