Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the Rochester Downtown Alliance is: "To be an unique, vibrant, urban experience - a central gathering place - for the community that is attractive, inviting, fun and livable."
The RDA was formed in February 2005 as a public/private partnership after a year-long study by the Downtown Planning Task Force known as PUMA. The concluding remarks of the study confirmed: "A vital downtown is needed for a vital Rochester!"
We are a Minnesota nonprofit corporation composed of a broad range of constituents representing property owners, business leaders, the city, and others with a direct stake in enhanced business and economic development conditions in the downtown district.
We work together to build a vibrant downtown community. We believe that a strong core positively impacts the greater city of Rochester. Through a series of special events, we create energy, excitement, and a unique character to Downtown Rochester - The Place to BE!
Our core events include: Thursdays on First & Third, SocialICE, STYLE on the Plaza, Dogs Downtown, and Small Business Saturday. For these events, the RDA is looking to partner with local non-profits and community groups who can earn funding and/or recognition for for their organization and programs. We also have a few opportunities for individual volunteers at our events.
