Rock Out Header

Rock Out Youth Poverty is an annual event hosted by the Salesian Youth Movement USA West to promote poverty awareness that is taking place around the community and the world.  Rock Out Youth Poverty is and opportunity where participants of all ages can come and learn about the different types of poverty that is happening around the world in different nations, such Gypsies in Europe or poverty in Africa by visiting our "Global Village".  At the "Global Village" participants will have the opportunity to educate themselves about poverty by watching videos on kids living in poverty, playing emulators on how it's like to live a week in a third world country, interactive quiz on US poverty, and much more.

Save the date! October 7th, 2017 at St. John Bosco High School, Bellflower. Check back later for more information. In the meantime check out some pictures from this years Rock Out Youth Poverty that took place in March.
