What We Do
We imagine steps to success and write the imagination lists.
We set S.M.A.R.T. goals and teach others to do the same.
We facilitate virtual and in-person events for teens to build skills.
We journey alongside each teen to ensure their plans support and propel their goals.
Who We Are
Our Mission is to equip teens with the skills and the assurance they need to dream big and take small steps to fulfill their dreams and purpose.
RULE aims to create a learning culture where teens have access to value-driven discussions within a support team that assigns roles and responsibilities to members to help them develop a mindset that is equipped for conquering adversity and increasing performance.
Program Goals for Teens
- Increase student-to-student interactions

Our board members are professionally diverse. More importantly, they work strategically to ensure that activities and transactions are advancing RULE's mission.
Although nonprofit organizations in the State of New Jersey have the capacity to seat 10 members on their board, RULE has six members, three of whom are officers.
Our board members oversee the efficient use of program assets. In addition, they assure the government and the public that the organization is functioning in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
