RISE Initiative

The RISE Initiative dedicated to raising awareness and reducing the stigma vulnerable populations face regarding sexual exploitation, homelessness, and poverty. RISE supports establishing safe spaces where youth can learn strategies to foster resilience, wellbeing, and emotional intelligence.

At-risk youth are vulnerable and can become easy prey to those who want to lure them into drugs, sex trafficking and gangs and other dangerous lifestyles. Once involved in these lifestyles, youth may find it challenging, if not impossible, to turn their lives around no matter how hard they try. That is why to break the cycle of abuse and trauma the RISE Initiative's support efforts to help prevent vulnerable youth from reengaging in risky behaviour and support their successful transition to adulthood. Through a series of life skills-based workshops to foster resilience, self- efficacy, leadership skills, and confidence. Workshop topics include:

· Cultivating Resilience

· Health and Fitness

· Holistic Eating

· Wellness and Self-care

· Building Healthy Relationships

· Leadership 


Through RISE, youth learn to develop life skills, goal setting, personal accountability, personal health and wellness further develop a further appreciation for their resilience and self-determination.
