RISE Mentoring is a school-based program in which committed, caring adults from the community help students rise above obstacles and succeed in school and life.
*Reach – To gain the trust of young people, you have to be willing to reach them by knowing their world.
*Inspire – As a mentor, you need to be a role model for kids.
*Support – Be committed to the cause. Be present and show up. Your mentee needs to know you are unconditionally there for him or her.
*Empower – Help kids see more, want more and be more than they ever thought was possible.
