On May 21, GRB runners and walkers participated in the annual Rochester JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge. The beneficiary of this year's event was the YMCA of Greater Rochester, an organization GRB is also proud to support.
GRB Community Relationship Manager Dave Rossi has generously volunteered his time to be a business mentor to the Greece Chamber of Commerce's YEA! class. YEA!, or the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, offers students a year long class that transforms them into entrepreneurs. Founded locally, YEA! now offers programs in 17 states.
Rossi and the other volunteers provide feedback for the kids' business plans and help them along the process of establishing their business. Stay tuned for updates as this class establishes their businesses and competes agains other local YEA! programs.
