Interested in being a mentor and and inspiration to the youth of tomorrow's multicultural Syracuse? We are looking for volunteers who are willing to work with refugee youth in 1st-8th grades enrolled in the Syracuse City School District.

As part of the"Cultivating Our Futures" Education Initiative, RISE hosts an After School Program that allows refugees to ask for targeted homework help, let their creativity loose through engaging activities, and simply play and remain active with one another.

The program looks not only to offer 1-on-1 assistance that reinforce math and literacy skills, but we also seek to incorporate fun activities that boost self-confidence, instill a sense of civic-engagement, and re-invoke a love for learning.

Running four times a week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) beginning October 2018, we offer flexible hours and dates and welcome any volunteers during any time of the year as long as they bring a willing and positive attitude! All we ask is that volunteers dedicate themselves to consistently attending at least one After School session per week.

We are also centrally located in downtown Syracuse, just a few minutes walk from Syracuse, SUNY Upstate, and SUNY ESF Universities.

If you see yourself aligned with our mission and have an ardent willingness to use your skills toward uplifting the refugee and immigrant youth in Syracuse, contact us today!
