About Us

“Rise Up 4 Change” is a 501(c) 3 non-profit educational program that works closely with disadvantaged/homeless youth to give our younger generation a more meaningful way to make positive choices and decisions, sense of purpose, family communication, and self- efficacy. Rise Up 4 Change, Inc. is grounded with the purpose of preventing violence and delinquency while promoting self-sufficiency. We teach them positive youth development, health and wellness, workforce development, family strengthening, financial literacy and goal settings. We believe that every child deserves a chance to live a full, long life; one that isn’t interrupted or ended through violence. Our main GOAL is to help children develop resilience, and we provide them with all the tools they will need to become competent, productive adult members of society.
