RISING exists to empower youth to build a better future through education, mentoring, and resources.
We seek to inspire HOPE by investing in the physical, mental, and spiritual development of underserved youth around the world so they can build meaningful lives, support their families, and contribute in a positive way to society. Will you join us?
Education has the power to completely change the trajectory of a young person's life, and ultimately, entire communities.

Staff & Mentors
The RISING team is made up of local staff who work in tandem with EM U.S. staff to help young people in Haiti build a better future.
RISING started as a local dream in Haiti to help kids and neighbors experience hope through education. It's become much more.
