J-Rock Publishing's mission is to encourage, and empower reading, writing, and literacy skills among urban youth. J-Rock was built as a company to give young people experience in the areas of printing, publishing, graphic design, photography, editing and writing. By giving young people a hands on approach to an industry that would otherwise never give them a chance, they are able to produce book products that get young people their own age excited about reading. Books and writing are extremely valuable tools that young people need to possess, and J-Rock believes the only way young people, especially young people from urban environments will ever develop a love for literature, is if they are directly involved in the book making process, and if they are writing the material people their own age are reading.
