Project Description

RISE

Resources Inspiring Success and Empowering (RISE) aims to bridge the disparity gap between the transitioning youth, young adult and their community through education, mentoring, advocacy, outreach and awareness.

At RISE youth participate in mentoring sessions and youth-adult partnerships. RISE is seeing the positive impact of these partnerships everyday! Over the past two years, youth has shaped RISE’s youth-centered approached and helped hold their community accountable.

“I love working with youth because they are a blank slate ready to learn and able to take any small piece of information or knowledge and really make it into something great!”
