On Belay program volunteers play a very important role in helping programs run smoothly and in building a real sense of community for participants. Since the beginining, On Belay has had a partnership with one of the residence halls at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). These UNH students provide support for On Belay both during and between programs. During programs, they serve as a critical link between participants and the adult facilitators. The combination of youth, vitality, resilience, energy, and compassion that these students bring to On Belay is reflected in the smiling faces of the children they serve.
“ I think I had as much fun as the kids if not more! I can’t wait to come back next time.”

The UNH volunteers not only help out at our programs but also put on the Annual Gingerbread House Contest every December which helps to raise money for On Belay.
If you are a UNH student and would like to learn more about volunteer opportunities, either helping to raise money or volunteering at a program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
