Free Summer Camp for Refugee Students and At-Promise Youth 

Boise Rock School, through Sunday, Aug. 5

In November of 2015, sociology professor Victor Rios gave a TED Talk that has shaped the way people and organizations talk about troubled kids: Rather than calling these teens "at-risk" youth, Rios argued they should be called "at-promise" to reflect their positive potential. Here in the City of Trees, Boise Rock School has embraced that idea—and the influx of refugees the city has seen in recent years—since 2012 with a "week of free rocking" for kids who fall into those two vulnerable groups. Up to 60 kids ages 6-18 will get the chance to unleash their inner rock gods Monday-Friday, Aug. 6-10. Experience is optional, as BRS will happily provide instruments for beginners, but slots will likely go fast; email to secure a spot.
