Our Mission: Develop positive, digital media programs, for at-risk & underserved youth to excel in school and beyond.
- To see all youth (ages 12-17 yrs) and young adults (ages 18-21 yrs), utilize the many New Media opportunities that Rize Above Media makes accessible regardless of their race, socioeconomic background or availability to technology and make a difference in their families, schools and communities.
- To provide opportunities for youth and young adults to express what is on their hearts through the works of their hands; creating positive media that inspires them to adversely affect the Digital Media industry.
- To keep youth motivated to stay in school!
Volunteers needed to facilitate classes for youth.
Who we are: We are a recently recognized, 501 (c)3 non-profit organization that started in September of 2010. Founders are a husband and wife team with over 15 years experience in the media and graphic design industries who have passion to see youth positively affected by media. The team is comprised of various professionals in the education sector and digital technology industries who also, share there same passion.
What we do: We enrich youth media in existing community organizations and attract participants to after school/summer programs. Classes with instruction in mobile gaming, video gaming, filmmaking, photography, publications and graphic design are produced with the purpose of encouraging younger generations to rise above any issues that affect them or the world around them.
How we do it: Our 3-5 day summer boot camps/weekend camps give youth the opportunity to explore the digital media programs we offer and attract student participation throughout the school year. During our after school programs, we encourage scholastic success. Each student participating in a after school program is required to maintain an approved min GPA. We work closely with each participating school/organization to provide a constructive learning environment where fun and education can mutually exist. We also, incorporate professionals in the specific fields (especially woman & minorities) to speak and inspire our youth during the various sessions.
