The ROSE Award is presented to individuals and public, private, or government entities that display leadership and ingenuity to advance volunteering and service initiatives in New York State. First Lady Michele Paige Paterson recognized the Rochester AmeriCorps program with this distinguished honor at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in NYC at the “Heart of Service Awards” luncheon. Since 1994, more than 1000 AmeriCorps participants have helped address pressing issues in the Rochester area, particularly those issues involving the well-being of children and youth.
