The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
RAD is a student based team that stands for sobriety in a pressure free, fun environment- by students, for students.
The Ryan Pappas Memorial Foundation is partnered with the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region to offer RAD (Real Alternatives to Drugs and Drinking) - a program for High School Students. After a drunk driving accident in Monument in 2014, RAD was founded to address this concern for students in District 38. Designed by students, for students, RAD promotes sobriety in a fun, pressure-free environment. RAD nights are hosted at the Tri-Lakes YMCA every Friday night, averaging 200-400 high school students weekly! Now established, RAD is looking to expand regionally - to include other school districts soon. As a Non-Profit organization, we rely on the support of volunteers to chaperone our events - so that we can keep as many teens safe as possible. Thank you for considering supporting us!
