"Seacoast Youth Services provides amazing opportunities that truly make a difference in the futures of children and families in our community. I’m honored to be part of such a wonderful organization!"

“I have served on the Seacoast Youth Services Board in different capacities since 2007, now currently as the Chairperson.  I volunteer for SYS because I am passionate about adolescent substance abuse prevention and education, especially its effects on the whole family unit. I am a school social worker in the Seacoast and have seen first-hand the remarkable work done by SYS. I am proud to be part of SYS and the wonderful programming they provide for youth and families in the Seacoast.”

"Our children are our futures.  There is nothing more valuable, to me, than giving every child, every opportunity possible."

Jerome Fuller - Manager, Staples - Seabrook

"Having seen the horrors of addiction up close and personal, I saw SYS as a great way for me to ‘pay it forward’. Hopefully we can make a difference for some who will in turn do the same."

Dan Dolen

“I decided to become a board member in order to give back to the community my time and experience.   I have been involved with youths coaching for many years and this was a good way to work with them again, since ours have graduated and moved on.  The work the Seacoast Youth Services does is such a valuable asset to the entire seacoast area.   I’m proud to be a member. “
