Volunteer and Youth Services


Volunteers are a critical component of all RCAM services. From the immediate community to across the country, professionals and volunteers work to support and assist all of RCAM services and people. Volunteers may work one-on-one with clients in their homes, or volunteers may come to us as a group from a business or church and spend the day or a week with us. The list of volunteer jobs is endless. Here is a start —

As a Volunteer you may be:

  • Making a home visit
  • Stacking firewood
  • Providing telephone companionship
  • Planting a garden
  • Shopping for groceries
  • Speaking to a group
  • Transporting to and from medical appointments
  • Helping with a fundraiser
  • Crocheting and/or knitting mittens and hats
  • On our Board of Directors

  • Cleaning the shelter
  • Helping in the office
  • Mowing a lawn

We will match your interests and skills with a task or project that fits. We love our volunteers!!

Youth Services

RCAM’s Rural Youth Life Skill Leadership (RYLSL) program helps rural at-risk teens build life-skills to transition into adult life with the ability to thrive.   Teens assess their strengths and areas of risk, and RYLS provides resources needed to plan and live out a successful economically independent future.  A teen advisory group helped design the program and helps make decisions about topics of interest and program activities.
