RoleModels University (RMU) has several unique qualities of allowing youth to be a major component within its structure, achievement and measurement of success. In management, RMU will employ a youth Board of Directors entitled, Board of RoleModels. This will give our students the opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with RMU’s adult Board of Directors and Board of Advisors in the school’s decision- making processes. This also gives our adult Boards and teams the opportunity to learn, first hand from youth, their challenges, their needs, and their desires. Secondly, this also gives our students hands on training in the areas of entrepreneurship, management and the actual operation of a philanthropic organization.
