Tremendous Community Support

Tremendous Community Support

A big thank you is in order for the tremendous community support and dedication for the safety and wellbeing of our Youth in the Town of Raymond. On May 7th the Raymond Coalition for Youth hosted a Town Hall Meeting on Healthy Teen Choices. In addition there was a presentation for the entire student body by a young man, Matt Clarke, about the importance of one choice and lifelong effects it can have, not only to the person making it, but also to the many peoples whose lives are touched by it.

Town and School administration, media, parents, youth, faith, law enforcement and community members where part of our presentation and talk. Everyone collectively in the room to discuss underage drinking, marijuana use, prescription drug misuse, seat belt safety and overall a community working together to own and work on the issues facing our youth. How is this done? With caring members of the community who are willing to discuss issues, share ideas and find solutions to put programs and activities in place to support our youth. Over the years much work has been done but these are not issues that go away. They require constant attention to raise awareness to youth and adults alike the dangers associated with each of them.

Thank you to everyone who attended the events. They were taped and are available on our website along with many other resources that we encourage you to check out. They can also be found on facebook/RCFYouth, or our Raymond Coalition for Youth Youtube account. For more information on the great work of the Raymond Coalition for Youth, or to get more involved in being a part of the solution and support for our youth please contact

Together we do make a difference!
