Springtime at the Center
Youth at Rise Up create individual terracotta pots that will be used to start their own seeds. This project will engage youth in healthy eating habits, responsibility, and achievement.
Support Rise Up's garden project by donating the following: garden tools (shovel, rake, edger, etc), gloves, top soil, mulch, concrete pavers (4"x8"x16"), vegetable and flower seeds and/or cuttings.
Rise Up Youth Spotlight
We are so proud of how hard this young woman has worked to maintain straight A's in honors courses this year. Virtual learning is not easy but she takes each challenge in stride.
Not only has she achieved academic success, but her peers nominated her to be Youth Representative on our Board of Directors. Here's to her accomplishments now and future!
Staff News: Welcoming Baby Speert
Congratulations, Katie & Bryce!
Our team had so much fun coming up with a fun way to tell our youth about Ms. Katie's big news. The look on their faces makes this tiny addition to Own It incredibly special.
Katie and Bryce are so thankful for the overwhelming support and love from the community. "I already have so many babysitters!" says Katie.
