The photoshoot will take place at 1 p.m. Registration is online at eventbrite.com/e/100-mentors-bike-ride-community-event-tickets-168469042441.
Mentors who attend will have the opportunity to share their mentorship stories with media professionals for a chance to be featured by Minority Reporter, the Beat 105.5 FM, Mega 97.5 FM and other local media stations.
Compeer Rochester will present opportunities to mentor Black and Latino youth who are living with mental health challenges and who are currently on a waiting list to be assigned a mentor.
