As a non-profit, ARISE is unique in that it is impacting change in Haiti through providing structured and goal-focused mentoring that is overseen by our certified Haitian mentors. We believe that change in Haiti must come from Haitians, making our grass-roots approach critical and revolutionary. As our mentees graduate from the 12 week curriculum, they enter their community equipped with powerful habits for life success, a vision for their future, and goals that are broken down into obtainable benchmarks.
Utilizing the ripple-effect of the measurable success of those enrolled in our program, ARISE has expanded into over 25 active mentor groups around the country and work with youth in their own community.
