About the Social Justice Mentorship & Scholarship Program:
This fall, Youth Rise Texas will support ten Austin area youth (ages 15-20) by providing them with a unique mentorship program designed to foster civic engagement and self-empowerment!
All ten participants will propose and carry out a personal or community-based project, commit to volunteering with Youth Rise Texas throughout the school year, and will meet with a mentor once a month who will help them design their project, develop goals, and stay accountable to their vision. Each young person who completes the mentorship program will be awarded a $1,000 continuing education scholarship in June 2017, to be used on traditional college tuition, or towards unique educational opportunities like specialized camps or trainings that will support their personal and professional development.
