We have intentionally scheduled our programming later in the day and included evening programs so that even if you don't have the same March Break you can still participate!
Rainbow Online Connection (ROC) is open to anyone aged 12-17 who is interested in participating! You do not need to openly identify as 2SLGBTQ+ either at virtual camp or at home and we welcome allies as well! We require all participants, regardless of how they identify, to agree to our “Safe Space” policy.
If you are concerned about speaking with your parents or guardians, contact us! We can explain ROC to them in a friendly and non-judgmental way and/or provide tips for you to navigate talking with them on your own. You are also welcome to register as an ally, regardless of how you self-identify.

The safety of our community is always our top priority. All participants must agree to a code of conduct governing appropriate behavior. Any violation of these policies will have consequences up to and including removal from Rainbow Online Connection (ROC). We have been running online programming since Summer 2020 and have had no issues with online security.
In addition, we will be implementing the following safety protocols:
- Only registered participants, staff and volunteers will be given access to our virtual space. We will be utilizing the waiting room in Zoom to ensure that only registered individuals can join our programs.
- All sessions will be recorded for safety. These recordings will not be shared without explicit permission from participants and their parents/guardians.
- All programs will have a minimum of two trained staff and/or volunteers present to ensure our ROC “Safe Space” is maintained at all times.
If you have any specific questions about online safety and security, please contact Mallory (Administrative Assistant). She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-909-2234 x101.
At the start of each session, we will require video to be turned on for a virtual attendance so that we can verify online participants. After that, if you wish to turn off your camera you may. There will be some sessions that will require video to stay on and there will also be sessions that do not require video. Information will be included in each session description.
