"Education Is Not the Filling of a Pail, But the Lighting of a Fire"
Established in 2009, 5 Rock is a global training and equipping institute for young people right in the heart of downtown Princeton, NJ. We exist to empower young people to face and conqueror the systemic challenges in today’s world in every sector of society. We believe that to positively affect one’s community or nation, whether in the fields of technology, government, health, research, performing arts, or business, the young people must first identify their passion in life and then have the necessary personal, academic, and relational skills to accomplish their goals.
We seek to encourage and train the next generation of young leaders to pursue their passion with excellence, integrity, honesty, and selflessness..
