R.I.S.E – Relationships, Instruction, Support and the Equipping of urban students for their future.
Our R.I.S.E Summer Program is a transition into college for our high school graduates. As part of the R.I.S.E curriculum, we help instruct our students to decide on their post-secondary plan. Whether that be attend college, a trade school/certificate program, join the military, or enter the workforce, we are here to support them through this next chapter of their life. The underlying goal of our summer program is to give our young leaders a chance to experience college.
For the younger kids, our staff has started a summer camp where our high school leaders get an opportunity to be more intentional with their leadership and life skills. They lead summer camp for the elementary students that they worked with throughout the school year. This summer program is open to all students (K-8) and is held at one of our partner elementary schools. Those enrolled are offered a free breakfast and lunch.
