The RISE Awards are an annual dinner that celebrates the  academic success of recently graduated high school students pursuing higher education and to honor the seniors who have graduated from our after-school RISE Mentoring program. During this celebration, we spotlight students and award scholarships to those who have achieved academically, including those who have overcome great adversity that might have derailed their dreams, those who have given back to their communities, and those pursuing dreams and careers where minorities are often under-represented.

       Join us as we send off and support the next generation

       of young adults who will change the world.

         Proceeds from the evening benefit the RISE Mentoring program and next year’s award winners.
