The East Rochester Youth Activity Center provides a venue at which the community’s youth, ages 12-18, can gather to socialize with their peers while engaging in educational, recreational and community service activities.
The Mission of the East Rochester Youth Activity Center (ERYAC) is to:
Provide the youth of East Rochester with not only a safe and stable place to congregate, but a safe place to address the social challenges of today’s youth such as family life, food insecurities, drugs, alcohol and peer pressure. Furthermore, we will aspire to improve their leadership skills by encouraging participation in community service projects such as the annual Halloween Party, fundraisers, volunteer opportunities (5k races) and Youth As Resources (YAR) grants. Additionally it will be our goal to develop a collaborative environment with the Jean Daniel Senior Center, the ER Community Resource Center, the East Rochester School District and other community resources.
