Pass ‘Da R.O.C.K. is a local non-profit organization whose mission is to redefine the realities of inner city youth from desperation to hope through basketball and mentoring. This is accomplished by providing safe sporting activities that allow our volunteers the opportunity to build strong relationships with the youth and be a positive influence in their lives. The relationships built make a larger impact as participants are mentored through the city schools. One of the main activities of the program, since starting in Syracuse in 2001, is an organized monthly event centered on open basketball competition for middle school and high school aged youth. This event also includes free food, drinks, and prizes for the participants. In addition to the monthly event, Pass ‘Da R.O.C.K. also organizes basketball tournaments, and group outings. Pass ‘Da R.O.C.K. is a D.B.A. of “All Day Every Day” a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
