BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
Empowering youth and broadening horizons through soccer...
Mission: Eradicate HIV, creating an HIV-free generation in Monroe County.
Grassroot Rochester is a University of Rochester student organization bridging the School of Medicine & Dentistry, School of Nursing, School of Public Health, Simon School of Business, and Warner School of Education. Our collective ambition is to work towards an HIV free generation in Rochester. Our work includes community based participatory research exploring the potential for harnessing evidence-based models of sport for development programs developed by American and South African initiatives including Starfinder, Grassroot Soccer, Grassroot Project, & CTC10.
Grassroot Rochester utilizes soccer as a platform to deliver health education and other resources to local charitable organizations, such as our lead community partners, River Flow Soccer Club & the Center for Youth After-school Program.
