Empowering Our Youth Through Academics
RISE 2 IMPACT, formed in 2012 because young boys of color in our school, community, and nation are experiencing issues that lead to decreased success in school. RISE 2 IMPACT addresses persistent opportunity gaps faced by African American male students to ensure all young people can reach their full potential. This happens through the cultivation of intentional experiences and opportunities that inspire and challenge our young men to see themselves as commodities and not burdens to society as they are so often portrayed.
