GET INVOLVED




Our volunteers are invaluable.


Volunteers are the most important resource community organizations like RMFY have! What we do would not be possible without the help from committed and caring people like you!

The great thing about RMFY is that our organization provides our students with the opportunity to interact with other positive peers and caring adults like you! Our groups whether in-person or virtual, unlock the potential for our youth to expand their social networks, collaborate and share ideas for a greater impact on their community. Here at RMFY, we are all about cultivating extraordinary relationships that help to build better lives, not just for our students, but for everyone involved.

Use your influence to put students in position for success.
