Recruiting New Members & Board Members

Come Join Us!

“Be the CHANGE that you wish to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi


As a non-profit board member responsibilities can include

strategic plan, oversee management, maintain society

requirements, build community relationships, fundraising

& work towards society mandate.


Merritt Youth & Family Resources Society is an agency that has been registered

under the Societies Act since 1978. The Society currently administers an

array of programs which include child care (infants, toddlers & school age),

special needs, youth support, workshops and more. MYFRS Board of

Directors is comprised of volunteers from the Nicola Valley.  For over forty

years the agency has relied on willing and able volunteers to help us carry

out our mandate.   Can you contribute some of your time to this valuable

endeavour?  We believe that your presence would be highly beneficial to

the children, youth and families of the Nicola Valley.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall management of the

Society’s business. The Board of Director positions are one-year terms and

re-elected at the Annual General Meeting that is held in September.

The Board generally meets ten times per year and occasionally

has special meetings; with Aug and December off. If you are interested in

becoming a Society Director, please confirm that your membership has been

in place for at least 30 days which is a requirement of the Society Act.

If you are interested; feel free to contact our office at 2199 Coutlee Avenue.

Thank you for considering our request and your interest in the Society!
