Programs at Roberti Community House are only successful with the help of many generous volunteers. By offering your time at RCH, you will not only have the opportunity to see the immediate impact of your contributions, but you will make connections with other like-minded people. For those high school and college students volunteering in our Afterschool Program, we take time after working with the community youth to reflect on the connections made, hearing perspectives from volunteers from different schools, and offering input to improve the program. Let’s work together to make Roberti Community House a welcoming place!
