Executive Director, Celeste ClarkExecutive Director, Celeste Clark – In 2000, Celeste was a concerned parent, willing to get involved, take a stand, and work hard to get the idea of a Coalition going.  The University of New Hampshire invited members of the community together to have a conversation about Raymond NH youth who participated in a Youth Risk Behavior Survey sampling.  This report showed our youth to have the highest rates of past thirty-day use for Alcohol, Marijuana, Tobacco and other drugs. As a parent of four children in the school district, it was time to get involved and be a part of the solution.  

Devoting more hours of her personal time than she can count, Celeste is living proof that believing in a cause and working diligently can bring about amazing change. Celeste is a positive thinker and a true believer in empowering youth and giving them a voice. 

In addition to Celeste’s infectious passion for youth and community, she is well versed in anti-drug prevention strategies.  She is a 2012 CADCA (Community Anti-Drug/Alcohol Coalitions of America) graduate and holds a certificate in Nonprofit Management, Grant Writing, and Juvenile Diversion. 

She has been successful in numerous endeavors over the last decade for youth programming, management/supervision, youth development, community building, and collaboration. 

“It is awe-inspiring to see how far RCFY has come, and exciting to see where it continues to go.  Working together, we have created a momentum for youth in our community, and we give people something bigger than themselves to get involved in and be a part of.  I love how involved our youth members get and the passion they bring to the table, but I also love that families know where to go for support and resources. Being there to help a family struggling and be able to connect them with services and supports offered by our partners is humbling.  The combination of these is honestly the inspiration that keeps me going.”

Administrative Program Coordinator, Pam Turcotte – Few understand the needs of the youth and community more than someone like Pam who has dedicated much of her time not only to the Coalition but to the many committees and boards. Pam is a local businesswoman, foster care mother, substitute teacher, and long-time resident of Raymond. She served on the Coalition’s Board for four years before transitioning into the role of Finance Officer and is the current Administrative Program Coordinator, where the Coalition continues to benefit greatly from her insight and extensive financial accounting background and expertise.

Program Coordinator, Christine BostaphChristine has been a team member in several capacities over the past several years.  We are very excited to announce that she is moving into a full-time position working with our Youth Action teams at the middle and high school as well as our various, and sometimes numerous, programs and activities.
