Rocking the Boat is a non-profit organization that transforms lives by restoring urban waterways and teaching kids to row. When Adam Green began it as a volunteer project in 1996, he never imagined how far Rocking the Boat would go or who it would help over its 20 year existence: 3,000 young people annually across all five boroughs of New York City.

I’ve just been there and had a great experience talking to and hanging out with cool people in Hunts Point. They were the coolest people I’ve ever met in Bronx. I could never guess what this place was about until I went inside and asked! Eric showed me around and and the boat they made with kids. It was fascinating! Live hip hop music was the first thing caught our attention. Going inside we saw many nice graffitis and talked to amazing people. If I had a kid I would definitely take the kid to the boat making workshops. I definitely go back to hang out with them again.

This is such a wonderful gem of experience, I have had 3 grandchildren and 2 nieces participate in this program. Here is a place where young teens can gained experiences in learning about their environment and sailing, or take part in building a boat. The mentors here are mostly made up of past participants who want to give back. It is also a place to forge friendships that welcome diversity, difference of opinions and strength of hopes for future endeavors.
