Rise Together brought their ignite and engage program to the Appleton area with the official launch of Discovery Corps, a youth training program, with Appleton West High School!
Appleton Central High School and Valley New School was also be in attendance for a of 1,516 students. Jesse Heffernan, a Appleton West graduate, is now the Program Coordinator at RISE TOGETHER, who is helping to launch their new training initiatives; Discovery Corps is one of those programs. This program will train up teenager so they can help their peers better navigate through life.
Now we can train youth as “advocacy leaders, peer coaches, and educators” in their schools and communities.
We believe that this program is the answer to much of what is causing discourse and disconnection in our youth today. Together we can make a difference and save lives!
