For many young people, growing up means growing up quickly. Their lives lack role models they can turn to when things get difficult. They turn to those around them, to what is available. Surrounded by such circumstances, few can see healthy ways out of the violence and loneliness that fills their lives.
It's time to Rise Up For Youth.
Our Program Directors and mentors know firsthand how rough life can get for these young people. But they found a way out, and they are sharing that way out with others. Rise Up For Youth, Inc.'s two signature programs - CLASS and Do You Want To Live Or Die? - are designed specifically with young people in mind, helping them envision the life they want and empowering them to reach it. Through mentoring, education, serviceship, and friendship, Rise Up For Youth gives young people the tools they need to reach their fullest potential.
