Tiger Stripes Ministry Program is a servant leadership development program that calls us to look inward so that we can go outward to serve and love those who live on the margins of society. Designed for young people eager to create a better world, Tiger Stripes teaches and models leadership within the context of community service and outreach.
Just like the stripes on RIT’s mascot, the tiger, each human is a unique and wonderful creation of God. We begin to appreciate this, and know ourselves most wholly in the context of community. Focusing on the dignity of each person, making no distinctions, we begin to walk with others and explore our faith, deepening our relationship with God, together. Ministering at Bethany House, Nativity Prep and Hope Hall, students are able to become servants, and in a sustainable model of development, servants are empowered to become servant leaders.
