Many Voices, Many Visions "Reconnect Rochester/Rochester Childfirst Network"
January 22, 2017 —
This week we'll examine an effort to bring bike sharing to Rochester. The group "Reconnect Rochester" is in the midst of a campaign to raise money to pay for five bike sharing stations along the northern edge of downtown. We'll also learn about the group's other efforts to transform how we get around Rochester. We'll also hear from the Executive Director of Rochester's Childfirst Network (RCN). A new teaching model that promotes the social and emotional development of children is now being implemented across the state. Much of the local training of that model is being facilitated by educators at RCN. We'll also learn about free early childhood screenings offered by the Children's Institute.
