The mission of the Ron Burton Training Village is to build within youth from low income communities, racial harmony, leadership, self determination, respect and love for others through a program of spiritual, educational and physical fitness training in a wholesome, caring environment.
Over the past twenty-four years the Ron Burton Training Village (RBTV) has served more than 3000 young men and women in their spiritual, physical and educational growth. Twelve months a year, over a six-year period, campers are guided, supported and mentored in some of life's most essential areas including: education, social skills, morals, values, leadership and fitness. The most intense part of this mentorship occurs during the summer when the campers attend the five-week training camp in Hubbardston, Massachusetts.
