Leadership Development

A firm hand-shake. How to interview for a job. How to give a presentation. How to conduct yourself in groups. How to dress for the job you want. This becomes a basic level of knowledge for Villagers.

As Villagers continue to grow within our program, they are exposed to leading business professionals, scholars, community leaders, military officers and so many more. 

They will naturally develop their ability to interact on many levels.

Each Villager is part of a “huddle”. It is here that they will learn how to act as a team, take care of each other and develop strong bonds. Every aspect of The Journey is a shared experience. We make it easy to find a friend.

During this college internship, you will excel as you innovate, strategize, execute programs and drive operations. This is your final step, preparing you for your career.

Ron Burton Sr.

The Ron Burton Training Village (RBTV) began as the effort of one man and his family trying to reach out and help kids in the Boston and New England area. The goal was to reach the meek and downtrodden. RBTV exists to assist in the growth of the children who need a helping hand; and let them know that there are people who care specifically about them and their growth; and that there is a light at the end of a tunnel when challenging circumstances impede their path. Never did we dream almost 20 years ago it would go this far.
