"Coming back to High Rocks to help with camps and programming has given me the opportunity to ensure first hand that High Rocks participants continue to receive the same quality of life enrichment that I did when I was a participant years ago. Giving back what was so freely given to me; is what High Rocks has always been about and I'm so glad to be apart of that." – High Rocks Alumni
How to stay informed - The Alumni Advisory Board
The Alumni Advisory Board is a volunteer board that acts as a resource to all High Rocks alumni and is focused on strengthening the High Rocks alumni network.

A network of support
The alumni support programs are ongoing symbiotic support systems between High Rocks and its members. Young women who carry their High Rocks experience into their lives as college students, professionals, and mothers have a unique perspective about the value of their involvement in our programs. Our organization continues to learn and grow with their support.
Meanwhile, High Rocks staff continue to act as academic advisors, career counselors, networkers and mentors to the graduates of our programs. We offer one-on-one career counseling and life coaching to all our alumni, interns, and others who have been through our doors. We always here to help.
For more information on upcoming Alumni events dates, please see our calendar.
“You have helped so many girls, myself included, shape their lives around who they want to be. This is not simple. It’s not as if you told me how to be happy. You helped me figure it out on my own, and that means a lot to me. At High Rocks, I received a lifetime of fabulous advice, the tools to help myself and others and a home unlike anything else in the world. I am so eternally grateful for all the love, faith, help, comfort and guidance the High Rocks has offered me. I hope to, one day, return the favor.” - High Rocks Alum
