Youth Bureau Overview

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.

To make this happen, we:

  • Help plan and coordinate services for youth
  • Assess youth needs to determine funding priorities
  • Promote partnerships with agencies and community providers for comprehensive services
  • Provide funding to youth service agencies
  • Monitor and evaluate Youth Bureau funded programs to ensure quality services
  • Coordinate Runaway and Homeless services for youth
  • Study/examine different segments of the youth services system and issues that affect youth
  • Advocate for legislation, systems change, and funding to improve/assist the youth services system
  • Create mentoring opportunities for youth to interact with seniors, professionals, and community leaders


We promote a positive future for all youth.


To create a community that supports a comprehensive range of opportunities for positive youth development.
