Since September 2013, RISE TOGETHER has partnered with more than 150 SCHOOLS and EDUCATED 160,000+ YOUNG PEOPLE by encouraging them to STAND UP and SPEAK OUT on issues that they care about most – BREAKING THE SILENCE around suicide, bullying, mental illness, drugs, and alcohol; starting a conversation that leads to lifelong impact.
RISE TOGETHER has four key programs to empower young people
- Student seminars that ignite and engage MS and HS students.
- Student-led activities like CRAVE21.
- Peer coaching program called Discovery Corps.
- Student ambassador program called The RAISE Project.
After seeing a Rise Together presentation, 80% of surveyed students indicated that they are now LESS LIKELY TO USE DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. Today, our solution is to provide communities with HIGH-QUALITY educational content, programs, workshops, and training that help build strong advocates and leaders.

Rise Together's 5 YR Celebration of Empowering Youth
We have some of the best speakers in the nation that provide dynamic and interactive school talks, helping young people to use their stories for good and to heighten their voice for change. Students are encouraged to speak out when they are or know somebody going through a tough time; promoting the message of togetherness. RISE TOGETHER also mentors with students one on one, reminding them that no matter what they are going through, they are not alone; that it is ok to struggle, that it is ok to ask for help.
WANT TO BRING A SPEAKER TO YOUR SCHOOL?
- Our program is designed to EDUCATE students on substance
abuse, addiction, mental health, coping, and life skills.

high school, and college students through storytelling.
- Our stories have power. By speaking out about our own experiences
and struggles, we EMPOWER young people to drive towards
purpose and create a healthier future.
The talks themselves are assembly-style events focused on sharing insights, inspiration and life experiences as a chance for students to ask questions directly to someone helping to empower thousands of youth across the nation.
