Imagine if all young people could enter adult life with a clear understanding of who they are, how to live, and where they are headed…
Too many of our young people float through life. They feel directionless, baseless, confused, hurt and resentful. Some never discover who they are and never realise their potential. The pressure to ‘just get by’ each day overwhelms their hopes and dreams. The Rising Foundation exists to change that.
Since 2009 The Rising Foundation has been unlocking the potential of young people. We show them that even though they didn't have a choice about their beginnings, they absolutely have a choice about their attitude, their identity and their direction from now on.
We journey with our diverse community of young people from the end of Intermediate School right through to the time they begin work or tertiary education. We equip them with everything they need, emotionally, socially, developmentally and practically to lead successful lives and to find the future they aspire to.
We need your support to continue this great work with the 250 young people currently in our care, and to spread the influence of our sophisticated and effective programme to more schools and other regions around the country.
Everyone who sees The Rising Foundation in action, wishes they had a programme like this when they were preparing for adult life. With your support we can make that happen.
Imagine the difference it would make.
The Rising Foundation runs a values based Leadership, Identity and Character driven programme for young people from tough backgrounds. A hand up, not a handout. We equip them for adult life as healthy, confident, genuine, capable and responsible people.
