Team bonding activities taking place during the cool morning of the 2017 Raising Placer Summer Leadership Retreat at Quarry Park in Rocklin. These awesome activities for the 75 attendees (50 youth and 25 adult advocates) were led once again by the wonderful Paul Burke from Blacktop Comedy along with our new partners at the Placer County Y.E.S. Program for young people at risk. Everyone loved these activities before the summer heat set in.

Stand-Up Get Down event attendees learn some line dancing steps during this November 2016 event in Rocklin sponsored by the Rocklin Parks and Recreation Department, Coalition for Placer Youth, Auburn Hip-Hop Congress, the Placer County Youth Commission, the Coalition for Auburn & Lincoln Youth and a host of other youth and young adult volunteers.
