Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Rochester Youth Year is an AmeriCorps VISTA-sponsored social justice fellowship that strives to eradicate poverty for Rochester youth and families, strengthen communities, and promote community-centered leadership. VISTAs perform indirect, capacity-building service for their host organizations to create, expand, and sustain asset-based, anti-poverty initiatives.
Rochester Youth Year places qualified candidates with recent Bachelor’s degrees at community-based organizations full-time, to create, innovate, or expand asset-based, antipoverty initiatives through indirect service, in order to address the many challenges that Rochester families face. Indirect service tasks may include but are not limited to grant writing, resource development, volunteer recruitment, program assessment and evaluation, systems building and more. The fellowship is 1 year long, open to all majors, and guarantees hands-on experience for each VISTA.
