East Rochester Youth Activity Center

Hours of Operation
Open to 6th - 12th Graders
Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 3:00 to 7:00 pm

The East Rochester Youth Activity Center provides a venue at which the community’s teens, in grades 6-12, can gather to socialize with their peers while engaging in educational, recreational and community service activities.

The mission of the ERYAC is to:

  • Educate Youth on Life Issues
    Our educational activities are intended to compliment and enhance ongoing school curriculum, and revolve around topics such as family life, drugs, alcohol, sex and peer pressure.
  • Involve Youth in Community Service Projects
    By participating in community service and outreach programs, young adults can better understand their community and learn the benefits of responsibility and citizenship.
  • Develop Youth Leadership
    The ERYAC Teen Leadership Committee meets to plan, schedule and advertise upcoming center events. These teen leaders learn responsible roles, cooperation and compromise.
  • Provide Youth With a Supervised Social Gathering Facility
    While in the company of supervisors, young adults can enjoy games like pool, foosball, or ping pong; internet, computer privileges, tutoring and socializing with their peers.

Youth Center Halloween Party

Date/Time TBA. Held in the Quinzi Lodge at Eyer Park, 200 Wilson Ave. Fun activities include crafts, games, donuts and cider for East Rochester residents pre-school- 5th grade. Costumes are encouraged.
