You won’t want to miss Providence Schools’ Rock the Block party on Friday, September 25 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. in the courtyard of Central and Classical high schools on Fricker Street.

Rock the Block will offer youth an opportunity to learn about ways to get involved with their city outside of school at information booths hosted by citywide community organizations.
