Welcome To A Community Risen
Rise is a nonprofit organization based in Colorado Springs, Colorado that exists to support young people who run community service projects. We support student projects with organizational backing, personal consultation with our dedicated Project Advisors, mentorship with our Board of Mentors, and financial support through our IRS 501c3 tax-exempt status.
This model connects young people interested in becoming servant-leaders with an experienced community service leadership team, and local exemplars experienced in various forms of leadership. Project Advisors are paired 1 on 1 with students to assist with everything from setting and meeting project goals to managing volunteers. Project Advisors work with student project leads, facilitating funding, donation paperwork, and meetings between student project leads and members of the Board of Mentors. Our Board of Mentors is a group of extraordinarily successful, inspirational, and community-minded leaders from across the armed services, business, academia, and government.
