The Rural Academy of the People


Through the Rural Academy of the People (RAP), RMM offers a variety of adult education programs through our Centers and online that are initiated and designed by rural, grass-roots leaders.

From ESL/Literacy classes, to Know Your Rights workshops, to developing cooperatives and numerous other programs, RMM is assisting people as they develop their understanding and explore opportunities. In turn, because of RMM’s extensive network within the faith, labor and academic communities, we are able to provide resources, support and access. Through the RAP, we also offer extensive programs to allies as they support grass-roots leaders and engage in systemic change.
