For operating support to sustain ongoing educational programs at Rocking the Boat.
Founded in 1996, Rocking the Boat works with low-income high school students in after-school and summer programs. The organization teaches students how to build boats from scratch and how to row and sail them. The students use the vessels they build to learn about environmental restoration issues in the Bronx and East Rivers. The community rowing program provides free, weekly opportunities to row on the Bronx River to hundreds of community residents of all ages.
