REGAL Women and ROYAL Men is a free monthly internship program for 26 youth ages 11-17. ROSE, Inc. and Shiloh Christian Community Church have collaborated in an effort to produce entrepreneurs in the workforce, and leaders in our communities. We invite volunteers from our community as well as college students to join us in this endeavor. Additionally, the programs provide cultural events, such as trips to museums, plays, and sporting events for our youth. Furthermore, we provide quarterly workshops for parents in job readiness and parenting skills. We often solicit volunteer guest speakers for these workshops. We envision our young ladies to have morals, values, and manners. We aspire to help them to be confident and develop standards. Knowing that they are beautiful, intelligent, and talented, we seek to assist them in achieving their goals, dreams, and aspirations no matter what they may be. Our young women are our future. We envision our young men to have morals, values, and manners. Our boys stand out for their interesting personalities, talents, and intelligence. They are energetic, curious, and destined to achieve whatever they desire in life. Our boys are our future. Our youth embody the REGAL Women and ROYAL Men definitions. As such, we should have high standards for them, and they should have high standards for themselves. Society’s standards for our children are not enough. Society does not believe in our children as we do; therefore, we (as parents and mentors) must accept the responsibility to nurture our children in such a way that they know their worth. We must encourage them to be the men and women they were created to be, and rise over the subpar standards of society. The youth of today are bold, intelligent, and fiery. We are charged to cultivate that energy into positive actions.
