Reaching Individual Success in Education (RISE)

Partners with the Kansas City Public School District R.I.S.E. program.

The R.I.S.E. Program is a college and career readiness mentoring program that has an intentional focus of preparing students to attend post-secondary institutions and/or technical schools. Students become part of the program beginning their freshman year of high school and obtain mentorship: academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally over the course of their time in high school. In addition to the mentorship and support, R.I.S.E. Students also participate in monthly workshops that reinforce the importance of community, authenticity, resiliency, and excellence. During monthly workshops, students navigate between sessions of their choice, that help them reach their own academic, personal, and professional goals. While the R.I.S.E. Program is open to any participant of any: race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or sex; the design of the program has been developed with intentionality on students of color.
