CHANGE - CREATE - IMPACT
ARISE PROJECT FOR HUMANITY Empowers the youth of Haiti to become self-reliant by teaching them through value-based mentoring to change their mindset, create their life, and impact their community. ARISE PROJECT FOR HUMANITY, the only mentoring center in the Caribbean, is revolutionary in its approach to international non-profit work. Mentoring changes the focus of development from outside resources to resources existent within the nation---Haitians themselves. Empowering the youth with positive mindsets and applicable strategies for personal growth, obtainable goals, and entrepreneurial skillsets creates a powerful impact for change that is both sustainable and organic, creating leaders for Haiti’s future who will in turn invest in the rising generation and promote a “pay it forward” mentality.
"WE BELIEVE THAT HAITIANS ARE CAPABLE OF CHANGE."
EMPOWERING HAITIANS THROUGH MENTORING
Reliable, caring relationships with adults provide youth with the supports they need to grow and develop into successful members of our community. When youth know that someone cares about them and they are recognized for their contributions, they are more likely to develop their skills, make healthy choices, and achieve self-sufficiency.
In addition to providing group mentoring workshops, ARISE PROJECT FOR HUMANITY connects young people one-to-one with a trained volunteer mentor in their community. Youth meet with their mentor 6 to 8 hours a month for 3 months with ongoing support from ARISE professional staff.
Individuals with parental/guardian consent, ages 12 to 17 years old who are willing to meeting with a mentor 6 to 8 hours a month must complete a interview with one of our team member in Haiti to enroll in the ARISE - Mentoring Program.
Individuals interested in becoming a mentor must be willing to meet with their mentees 6 to 8 hours a month for at least 3 months. They will need to attend our training and have an endorsement from a local leader as well as complete an online application.

When Williamson Sintyl was just sixteen years old, a massive earthquake hit his home island of Haiti. Williamson was trapped in a collapsed building for twenty seven hours before being rescued. He soon after found the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and became a member. He has since served a mission, moved to the United States in 2015 and started a family in 2016. He founded the Arise Project For Humanity to help Haitians have a brighter future. He believes that Haitians are capable to change Haiti and that the power is within them.
To commemorate 10 years of the big earthquake in Haiti, to remember those who have gone before us, we partnered with Timballard from ourrescue and Rj_idos to make a documentary about the story of our founder Williamson Sintyl.
Williamson was buried for 27 hours in the rubbles after the earthquake hit in Haiti. The documentary is about how he has turned that tragedy into something meaningful – ARISE Project for Humanity.
Stay tuned to know more about what goes on in the organization.
