Boy Scouts Volunteer
For many years, Robert Raffalo has proudly volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America. Having been a Boy Scout himself when he was young, Raffalo enjoys the opportunity to pass the torch. The life skills and lessons learned as a Boy Scout are as fulfilling as they are fun. Of course, nothing beats those summer childhood memories of roasting marshmallows on the fire! But there’s more to Boy Scouts of America than the outdoor adventures. In addition to the camaraderie and campfires, being a Boy Scout teaches a young man about problem solving and strategic thinking. As a Boy Scouts Volunteer, Raffalo works to emphasize that value among the members of his troop.
Youth Sports Coach
In Robert Raffalo’s experience and view, participating in youth sports is an incredible opportunity to build character. A product of the process, he knows all too well how sports can mold a competitive spirit and drive for results. But beyond how sports contribute to the individual, there’s much to be said about the team player mentality instilled in athletes. It’s something that carries into Raffalo’s professional life even still today. Over the years, he has participated as a Youth Sports Coach in various programs, including Little League, Youth Soccer and Pop Warner Football. By far, his favorite sport to coach is baseball, though he is humbled by the opportunity to assist in all youth sports programs whenever he can.
