The Center for Youth

The Center for Youth is a youth-centered, multi-programming agency founded 50 years ago by a group of teenagers who believed that youth voices must be heard and that outreach includes serving young people where they are - in schools, on the streets, in shelters, in juvenile justice and in our offices, fiercely and with a full commitment. Our mission is to create a beloved community where all youth thrive and succeed and most especially those young people in our community facing housing instability and homelessness. All services to young people & families are free, voluntary, confidential, respectful and accessible 24/7, 365 days a year. Our programs & services are in schools, recreation centers, Center offices and in neighborhoods where young people thrive. Strings for Success is a unique program of The Center for Youth in partnership with the Rochester City School District that enables all interested students to study the violin. It is our mission to create opportunities for children to benefit from the transformational power of music and to build assets for their future. This creates opportunities and removes barriers that prevent children from participating in the arts and gives students the opportunity to create beauty through music. Your contributions from ROC the Day will benefit this program. Watch this video to get a glimpse of this amazing program and students in action! > https://youtu.be/kF9aXRY5mpc
