Curious about what our Alumni had to say about their RISE experience? Check out their videos.
Our RISE program is designed for young people aged 18-30 with little or no previous experience in volunteering. Over the course of 22 weeks as a RISE Ambassador, you will develop skills, learn about community engagement, and work with your peers to build something meaningful together.
ABOUT THIS YEAR'S THEME
The theme for the next group of RISE Ambassadors will be Gender Inclusion. From service offerings, to institutions, to opportunities, gender inclusion is about understanding and working to remove the barriers faced by folks with marginalized gender identities (i.e. two-spirit, trans, non-binary, women, etc).
Working towards gender inclusion involves the engagement of all genders and allies. In RISE, you just have to be open to learning. All are welcome to apply!
The deadline to apply for Cohort VI (Fall 2020) is June 1.
The RISE program will run for 22 weeks from August 3, 2020 to December 14, 2020. Because of the ever-changing regulations for traveling due to COVID-19, details for the retreat are still being worked out. But we are planning for the gatherings to take place between Sunday, August 30, 2020 to Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
