Our Mission is to create and support opportunities for community led enrichment programs in the greater Roseland Area.
The ROSELAND YOUTH CENTER (RYC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing positive programs and activities for the children and youth of Southwest Santa Rosa (Roseland Area). We are currently a youth center without walls, offering after school programs such as drumming, dance, and literacy programs.
Our plans for future programs and classes include sports, art, music and daily homework/tutoring assistance. Through these programs we hope to teach our children and youth vital life skills and mentoring. Our goal is to help direct them towards positive alternatives and away from negative influences and behaviors, such as drugs, gangs or other unhealthy life choices.
Our programs are held primarily after school, with additional weekend and summer hours. We strive to include the surrounding community as well as other community agencies throughout Sonoma County through collaboration and use of facilities for our programs (i.e. schools, gyms, and playgrounds).
