Mission Statement

RISE is a not-for-profit organization that works closely with families and educators to provide children in East Palo Alto with a strong academic foundation and the self-confidence necessary to excel in life. Committed to offering ongoing and collaborative support starting from infancy, RISE works to support students’ early success and continue to succeed throughout their education and beyond. It is our desire that students will leave us eager to inspire future generations to make a lasting impact on the community.

Description

RISE was founded to address disparities between Palo Alto and neighboring communities. By building close community and family connections, RISE supports the whole family from a child’s birth throughout their entire education.

We support children and their families with several programs including Early Risers (serving children and families ages 0-3), RISE After-School (serving children and families in elementary, middle and high school)

RISE’s after-school program aims to provide a safe, comfortable environment for academic/extracurricular enrichment. We target skills students are currently learning in school, and communicate with their classroom teachers to identify which to focus on. In addition to individualized academic support, we offer students enrichment opportunities with the opportunity to further develop their intellectual curiosity, creativity, and collaborative skills. Activities include project-based learning, art, cooking, physical education, community service projects, and field trips. Finally, social emotional-learning (SEL) is a key component to our program, helping students cultivate their emotional intelligence through mindfulness, journaling, and artistic expression. We develop our own curriculum for our program that is based on current educational research and best practices.
