Our Youth Members are our equal partners at the RCFY table.  To quote them, “RCFY is about kids and adults working together to make our community a better place to live."


If you are or know a young person that wants to be a part of RCFY or making a difference in our community, please encourage them to join a Youth Action meeting.  
  • Raymond Middle School (grades 5-8) Youth Action students meet Wednesdays from 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm in room 144 at Iber Holmes Gove Middle School. 
  • Raymond High School Youth Action students meet Tuesdays from 2:15 pm - 3:30 pm in room 207.


Do you know that 2 out of 3 people are connected to someone who struggles with substance misuse or addiction?  It is important to know you are not alone.  The Raymond Coalition For Youth and our partners are working hard to bring helpful resources and support into our community.  Please contact our office to learn more, or visit our resources pages on our website.
