Your Participation Counts!
Become A Volunteer Member
The success of Montcalm Prevention Collaborative in making Montcalm County be drug free depends on the help of an amazing network of both adult and youth volunteers who spread prevention messages, participate in events, serve on committees, and volunteer to be a part of our Board.
We welcome volunteer members starting from middle school to adults. We enjoy that many of our members come with diverse backgrounds, including treatment professionals, local business owners, family and/or friends of someone with addiction, individuals in long term recovery, youth in local schools, and more! What everyone has in common is the ability to see Montcalm County being drug free. One County. One Cause.
When you participate as a volunteer member of the Montcalm Prevention Collaborative, you join a County effort to prevent substance misuse and the promotion of a safe community for all residents and youth! No matter how you choose to participate, what matters most is that you DO participate!
