The City of Rochester Bureau of Recreation's Youth Voice, One Vision, and the Monroe County Youth Bureau's Youth As Resources board will host its annual Steppin' Up to Solutions youth conference, in partnership with Nazareth College's Center for Service Learning.
The conference will walk students through the planning process to develop local service learning projects addressing issues in their neighborhood. Workshops will focus on grant writing, leadership and advocacy. Youth groups who finish the process will then be able to apply for a $1,000 grant to fund their projects. Event organizers are anticipating 100 youth from recreation centers, churches, community groups, and clubs across Monroe County, along with 50 students and staff from Nazareth College.
