NewRoc Uplift Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth through mentorship, education, and opportunity. Through our diverse range of programs and initiatives, we aim to provide essential support, guidance, and opportunities for personal growth and development. Our dedicated team and passionate volunteers work tirelessly to empower young individuals, helping them overcome challenges, discover their potential, and create a brighter future.




In 18 short months, the NewRoc Uplift Foundation, Inc. has distributed over to $7000.00 in financial support to the hard-working students of Newton and Rockdale Counties. This effort confirms our commitment to providing the support, guidance, and resources necessary for young individuals to navigate academic challenges, discover their potential, build character, and create a better future for themselves and their communities.

Together, we uplift, inspire, and empower the next generation to realize their dreams and make a positive impact on society. As President of the NewRoc Uplift Foundation, Inc. I am excited about the impact we have made in a very short time, but I am more excited about the lives we hope to change.

Our partnership with the Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo and the Bill Pickett Educational Foundation has enabled us to increase our visibility within the community, while also enhancing our effectiveness throughout Greater Atlanta. Their ability to educate the markets that they support about the impact that Black Cowboys and Cowgirls had on the expansion of the American West is a galvanizing message for both organizations.

As we continue to identify and align with strategic partners who share a mutual goal of promoting a healthy, balanced, and equitable educational environment, we want to increase our impact through scholarships and awards. Thank you to our existing partners in Newton and Rockdale Counties and welcome to our newest partners. Let’s continue to make our presence felt!
