The Rock made a special appearance at a graduation ceremony held for youth offenders on August 17, 2015. They completed a six-month boot camp through the Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rebilitation Department. 

Johnson is currently filming a documentary called Rock & a Hard Place, which will give us a glimpse inside the challenging and life-changing program. He was able to connect with the youth offenders by sharing his personal story and telling them that it is possible to come out on the other side. “I got in trouble a lot when I was younger. By the time I was 16, I had been arrested eight or nine times for a variety of things, terrible things that I shouldn’€™t have been doing. But I had people in my life who saw the potential in me when I didn€’t see it. Much later in life, once I got out of college, I started to understand the power of seeing your potential and what that means,” says The Rock.
