The Rochester Monroe County Youth Bureau works with community organizations, schools, parents and youth throughout Monroe County to provide opportunities for positive youth development to all residents below 21 years of age. We also utilize the 40 Developmental Assets of The Search Institute to foster growth in Monroe County youth.
Family Celebration of Community Assets
The Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau sponsored the 13th annual Family Celebration of Community Assets at the Seneca Park Zoo on Saturday, October 1, 2011. Along with County Executive Maggie Brooks, DHS Commissioner Kelly Reed, RMCYB Director Bob Zinck, Legislators Mike Barker, Ciaran Hanna And Legislature President Jeff Adair, over 400 people gathered to honor those in our community who support positive youth development through the use of the 40 Developmental Assets. From June through September, Community Asset Coordinators submitted names of individuals and/or groups, to be recognized for their outstanding asset building efforts.
