Organizers call it a meeting, that's more like a celebration.

It's the Center for Youth's annual meeting, held at The Strong, Monday.

In addition to taking care of some business, like electing new members for the board of directors, the center took time to celebrate helping hundreds of young people over the past year.

Elaine Spaull, of the Center for Youth, says it's a group effort.

“There are people who are unsung heroes. Everybody from the guy who prints our end report to people who bring in coupons for our shelter, we have people who are helping us clean our HVAC systems at our houses, our shelters. And then you have people who are just doing really amazing work on the streets with our kids. We want to say thank you. And we want to say thank you in a very public way.”

The center helps children, young adults and families right here in Rochester.
