Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau
Since 1960, the Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau has been a planning, funding, and coordinating agency which is dedicated to developing, implementing and evaluating a comprehensive system of services for youth in the Rochester and Monroe County community. We believe youth and their families deserve the best services possible.
The Youth Bureau is host to the Youth As Resources (YAR) program. YAR is a youth philanthropy program which provides grants of up to $1,000 to young people to design and implement civic engagement activities and service/service-learning projects which target social concerns, resolve community issues, and contribute to significant community improvement. YAR is governed by local youth and adults responsible for all of the decisions that accompany the grant-making process.
