Running RFTS

RFTS is so flexible you can really make any type of adjustments you need to do while running it. Currently, all my programs are in Elementary Schools – therefore all my programs are run very similar. BUT, you can be as creative as you want !

Be flexible to the needs of your group !

When I do RFTS I do a lot of the work !

To run the entire program for me now – it takes approximately a total of 25 hours ! This includes EVERYTHING !
