ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Even though it’s spring break the learning continues for students in Rochester!

School Number 19 is hosting a three-day event called PhotoVoice for students to explore areas of public service, civic engagement, and career exploration. All of this is supported by a grant from ESL Federal Credit Union.

Students paid a visit to the city of Rochester’s Department of Recreation and Human Services over on St. Paul Street to learn about how city government works.

Che’ Hagins. The coordinator of Roc MBK said, “One of the keywords that we keep referring to is opportunity because opportunity creates exposure and exposure creates identity. So I want them to be able to find themselves and be able see themselves in these different crews, especially when it comes to BIPOC. When it comes to people of color, not often do they see themselves being resembled with such high standards, but then also have in regards to the conversations that are taking place and know that as youth they have input.”

Organizers say this is all part of an initiative to address the opportunity gaps for boys and young men of color.
