Bob CoffinBob Coffin, Common Wealth Development

“Inexhaustible” is how Common Wealth Development describes volunteer Robert Coffin.  In the past few years Bob has conducted mock interviews with approximately 150 teens as part of the Youth-Business Mentoring Program.  He offers valuable feedback and constructive criticism in a safe environment.  His dedication to Common Wealth Development—and many other nonprofits he’s involved with—is admirable.
