Youth Rise Needs You!

Youth Rise is the recipient of an exciting, fast-paced matching grant challenge that we’re thrilled to announce to our supporters!  We have until Father’s Day, June 21, to raise $4,000 through our online fundraising campaign – and the best news is, every dollar given will be doubled!  

But without you, our supporters, we can’t make it happen. Our summer Youth Organizing Institute will cost $14,000 total, and $8,000 of that goes directly to the teens we work with:     

  • $10 will buy one teen’s basic supplies for the summer
  • $35 will buy one teen a healthy lunch for a week
  • $68 will pay a teens wages for the day + buy their lunch for the week
  • $100 will buy one teen’s books for the summer

Please consider making your gift today.
