Volunteer

Our volunteers are the BEST!!

If you are a one time volunteer for an event or activity, or a regular we can call on to jump in, you are appreciated and make a difference!!

 

Why volunteer for the Raymond Coalition For Youth?  
First and foremost - to make a difference.  People volunteer for so many reasons – out of a sense of service, because they have skills 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.”    To learn a little more about RCFY you can visit a monthly meeting or connect with our staff if you have any questions or want more information.  

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 healthy development and positive choices for our youth while helping us build a stronger community.  Recruitment for volunteers is ongoing.  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.
