Together We Can RISE

RISE is a student-centered program that strives to eliminate barriers and foster healthy learning. We are focused on serving students of color, low-income youth, and first-generation college students. RISE provides tutoring, academic advising, and social-emotional resources for a successful middle and high school experience.

“RISE has given me a quiet work place, academic support when I need it, and keeps me on track with my school work each week. RISE helped me explore career opportunities and compete in events I might otherwise have not thought myself. RISE tutors help you feel included, give you information about things like summer camp which help me have a better understanding of what I want to do in my future.”

“I definitely talk to my family about the RISE Program about how it’s helped me a lot with my grades and stuff; they know it when I come here that I get work done. I mean they can see it too. It’s helping a lot of kids and I’m an example of it. It’s definitely helped me a lot to not fall behind especially with these times of distance learning.”
