The Patriot HS Ruri-Teen Club
is a civic/community service club that promotes goodwill and fellowship while encouraging volunteerism through community service. Ruri-Teens
are a youth service branch of Ruritan
a nationwide organization that began in 1928 and is 32,000 members strong, currently working to improve more than 1,100 local communities, and still growing!
The Patriot Ruri-Teen Club
is sponsored by the Nokesville-Bristow Ruritan Club (www.facebook/nokesvilleruritans.com)
; however, the Patriot Ruri-Teen Club
is a self-directed club and becomes involved in those approved causes that are important to its members and serve the greater good, particularly of our local community.
This is a great opportunity to make a positive impact on your community while giving community service hours each and every month. There will be a service project included as part of each monthly meeting. Additionally, larger projects and events will be scheduled outside of monthly meetings - active participation in these projects is encouraged as often as possible, and is required at least six (6) times/year to remain in good member standing.
