Rochester Youth Year

Rochester Youth Year


The Rochester Youth Year (RYY) Fellowship is an AmeriCorps*VISTA sponsored program administered by the Rochester Regional Network (RRN), a consortium of seven local colleges:

  • The College at Brockport
  • Nazareth College
  • Roberts Wesleyan College
  • Rochester Institute of Technology
  • St. John Fisher College
  • SUNY Geneseo
  • University of Rochester

RYY places talented recent graduates of RRN colleges in community-based organizations for one year to create or expand initiatives that address the various challenges facing youth and families in Rochester.


SUNY Geneseo is a founding member of Rochester Youth Year and has the ability to select at least one Geneseo student a year to be a Corps member.
