Our program, sponsored by Monroe Community College, is located at the Downtown Campus in Rochester. Before and during their initial orientation and training, members have a chance to learn more about the service placements available to them. They also participate in activities designed to help them identify their skills, interests, and preferences so that these qualities can be matched to a placement. As stated by a program alumnus, "The positive impact on my life, both personally and professionally, is an experience I couldn't have gained anywhere else.
