Why volunteer for the Raymond Coalition For Youth?
People volunteer for so many reasons – out of a sense of service, because they have a skill to share, and YES, just because it feels good to be needed! At RCFY we believe that volunteering is an exchange. As Susan J. Ellis of Energize, Inc. says in this fantastic article, “Adding your effort to the work of others makes everyone’s lives better.”

What type of Volunteer are you?
There are many ways to support and make a difference. Depending on how much time you want to spend volunteering and where your interests lie, there are all kinds of things you could do! The following are just a few examples – call our office at (603) 895-7062, or contact Christine Bostaph directly, to discuss how YOU might best fit into the Raymond Coalition For Youth as a volunteer. Any and all time is appreciated. You can give 2 hours per week, 2 hours per month, or 1 day a year, or you name it!

Volunteering is truly an everyone thing! 

As the Raymond Coalition for Youth has grown, so has the need for volunteers. There are many opportunities for you to support the healthy development and positive choices for our youth while helping us build a stronger community. The Programs (planning events), Communications (marketing/advertising), and Development (fundraising), are areas we welcome anyone who has an interest and time to devote to helping shape these important components of the coalition. Recruitment for volunteers is on-going. The Raymond Coalition for Youth invites you to join us in our effort to provide positive choices for our youth, along with supporting their parents and guardians by providing programs that enhance their ability to nurture and encourage our youth for a positive future.
