R.A.T.S.: Rochester Area 20 Somethings
Upcoming Events

* R.A.T.S. will be attending these events as a group.

The Rochester-Area 20-Somethings (R.A.T.S.) is this community's group for 20- to 29-year-olds looking for social interaction, networking, and community service. We have events and activities that cater to all tastes, and encourage meaningful alternatives to the bar scene.

We support active lifestyles, and we're open to all men and women 20 to 29 years old. We are neither politically nor religiously affiliated, and we do not charge dues or joining fees. We're not just a social group, we're not just a networking group, and we're not just a volunteering group... we're all three at once!

We are committed to building Rochester's 20-something community, and in turn supporting Rochester's growth. Additionally, we will help our community by undertaking the occasional service project.

R.A.T.S. is the group for all 20-somethings wanting to make a difference in and with their lives, and we offer low-committal, fun, inexpensive activities to enjoy together!


We hold social gatherings, facilitate networking, attend sporting or cultural events, and give back through community service. The purpose is to meet like-minded individuals with whom you can build lasting relationships, and discover Rochester's opportunities for young adults.

We also provide alternatives to the bar scene for 20 to 20-year-olds looking to expand their circle of friends. We facilitate social, networking and community-involvement initiatives in active, comfortable locations to interact with people just like you. Typical activities include outdoor picnics, beach volleyball games, winery tours/ wine-tastings, nature hikes, cultural and sporting events, evening cruises, and much, much more.

Our activities focus on three broad areas-- click on any of the links to see pictures of activities we've already done.
