More about RISE Mentoring

RISE Mentoring is a school-based program in which committed, caring adults from the community help students rise above obstacles and succeed in school and life.    

RISE stands for:

Reach – To gain the trust of young people, you have to be willing to reach them by knowing their world. 

Inspire – As a mentor, you need to be a role model for kids that inspires change.

Support – Be committed to the cause. Be present and show up. Your mentee needs to know you are unconditionally there for him or her through the good and bad times.

Empower – Help kids see more, want more and be more than they ever thought was possible.
