HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Members participate in a 4-year program of community service, spiritual growth and leadership development. Individual chapters are located in approved geographic areas. Each geographic area is made up of individual chapters. A chapter is comprised of fathers/sons and mothers/daughters with students ages 9-12 grade. Each chapter has its own chapter board led by volunteer parents who are active in the organization. The fathers/sons and mothers/daughters chapters operate independently. Each chapter holds monthly meetings where the parent and the student attend together to learn from meaningful speakers. Each grade level also has a mentor of whom the members meet with after the speaker for discussion and mentorship time. The Chapter holds various monthly service projects in the community and each grade level has a different area of service on which they focus each year. Over the four year program, the members serve in a multitude of ways and with a variety of organizations in the community. RTwelve is a certified organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.
RTwelve partners with organizations in the
community to serve and provide for their specific needs. Some examples of who we provide services to are:
Domestic abuse shelters
Tutoring & learning programs
Pregnant and teen mothers
Formerly incarcerated women
Monthly meetings provide opportunities to learn from and be challenged by Christian speakers who speak on the topics covered in our Romans 12 curriculum such as:
Identity in Christ
This intentional time together fosters deep conversation, connection, accountability and fellowship with like-minded parents and students.
Each chapter provides opportunities for the student members to take on board or committee leadership roles in their grade level. Leaders plan and facilitate meetings and events, developing strong leadership and problem-solving skills, as well as organizational and communication skills. Parent Members also take on various leadership roles within the Chapter.
