R.O.C. Inc. was founded to coordinate and maintain quality control over all of the club chapters (with more expected to come) as well as manage donations to support the growing New American community.
R.O.C. Inc. provides stipends for teachers in the Heritage Learning Program who dedicate their time each Saturday with refugee students helping them learn, maintain and remember their native languages and experiences (Kurundi and French with the Burundian Heritage Learning Program) as they integrate into American society. As R.O.C. Inc. continues to grow we will continue to support other programs similar to the Heritage Learning Program.
Our goal is to motivate high school and college students to see how their contributions of time and interest will make a difference in the lives of New Americans living in Vermont and students around the world.
R.O.C. Inc., develops leaders out of high school and college who have personal experience with many of the challenges New Americans face and who are interested in international and local issues regarding poverty, education, and the value of multi-cultural relationships.
Our newest R.O.C. Inc. initiatives include an international health program as well as an international cultural exchange program in Ghana.
