City Of Rochester Teaming Up With Former NFL Player For Youth Program
by News

The City of Rochester is teaming up with Roland Williams for a pilot program that will use sports to help young men build positive life skills.

The East High grad and NFL alumnus will lead up the Youth Mentorship and Empowerment Program. It's open to young men ages 13 to 18 who are city residents, and will offer support and the necessary tools to become model citizens. It will focus on personal accountability, social responsibility and community value with the help of caring mentors and role models.

"Everyone needs love, everyone values love. I think we need to highlight the fact that we have men, we have women, we have people who are interested in seeing these kids succeed so I want to be a person to help bridge that and help connect that," Williams said.

The Youth Mentorship and Empowerment Program will take place in August at the Edgerton Community Center. It's set for August, and open to the first 500 to register.
