High Rocks offers training and continuing education to local and regional non-profits or individuals interested in learning more about youth education and development, teaching, and non-profit management.

Through years of trial and error, we have developed many best practices from the ground up.  Why reinvent the wheel?  We are happy to share our experiences and learning with you.

If you are interested in having training that is not on this list let us know, we would be happy to customize training specific to your organization’s needs.
