COMMUNITIES need a better way to address the challenging issues facing today’s youth. It’s a simple fact that, due to LACK OF RESOURCES, schools cannot provide enough effective approaches to engage youth and
their families who are at risk. This results in kids falling through the cracks.
RISE TOGETHER focuses on community-level change by implementing unique strategies based on local needs determined by community assessments, surveys, feedback, and evaluating efforts. Since 2014, RISE TOGETHER has surveyed more than 7,000 students across 53+ counties. RISE TOGETHER has collected more than 3,000 testimonies from youth and people who care about them that demonstrate the lifesaving impact of its programs.
