Ensuring the Educational Success of Children with Incarcerated Parents
RISE has two main programs currently running. Our Scholarship Program gives motivated students displaying leadership potential who have been accepted to a private or parochial high school financial support as well as a mentor. Our Mentoring Program matches healthy adults with children aged 7 through high school and supports their consistent monthly engagement through cultural and recreational group activities.
RISE staff support relationships between the children we work with and their mentors, schools, and families. We work to provide information about additional community supports available beyond the scope of what RISE can provide. RISE has also created opportunities such as tutoring, SAT preparation, Saturday Enrichment activities, and Summer Programs.
