Raider Parent Mentors, or RPM, is our parent-based organization. Formed originally by Mike Ciance, parent of two former student team members, RPM has grown to become a vital contributor to the smooth running of Raider Robotix activities.
RPM assists at the team’s major activities, such as Brunswick Eruption and Lego Camp, and provides rides for students to off-season competitions and other events. The parent mentors seek out community service opportunities for the students, tracking their progress for team travel eligibility. Parents volunteer to prepare & deliver meals to the high school during the always hectic build season. In addition to manpower, RPM coordinates various fundraising activities throughout the year. And of course, you’ll always find RPM members at competitions and other events enthusiastically cheering the team!
Membership naturally varies as students graduate and others join. We’re in one of those periods of flux right now. Presently RPM is led by Mike Savin.
How is RPM Organized?
RPM self-organizes into committees as needed to focus on various team functions, and individual committees establish their own meeting schedules as need dictates. These areas are core.
