The Center for Youth delivers prevention counseling as part of its continuum of care for youth. We also offer an intervention program, Teen Intervene, intended for youth who want to reduce or eliminate drug, alcohol, and tobacco use. Services are free, confidential and based on the voluntary participation of youth.

Youth can access counseling by calling the 24-hour line, 271-7670, or coming to our 905 Monroe Avenue, Rochester, NY office between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.

  • Ongoing assessment
  • Referrals
  • Building life skills
  • Support services to Rochester Teen Court
  • Case management

The Center is welcoming to all youth and strives to provide services that are respectful of the many cultural, ethnic, religious, and GLBT identities youth represent.
