Our programs align with our core initiatives: Financial Education, Voter Registration, LGBTQ+ Mentoring, STEM Education, and Community Drives. We believe that the reinforcement of these core initiatives will positively affect our most marginalized individuals transforming our communities in a good way, inspiring change and hope.
Teaming up with the World Up Foundation and local Churches we have given Socks, Gloves and Toiletries to various RVA Communities.

R.I.S.E LGBTQ+ Mentorship Program
Scratch: Programming 101 | Education
STEM is a fast growing field and the job opportunities are growing each and every day. It is important for students to be exposed to STEM at a young age, this expands their minds and possibilities. These possibilities directly correlate with personal, educational and future career goals for the student. Some students are not as exposed to interactive and immersive STEM education due to their school district not having enough funding or personal funding. This also correlates with the age they are exposed to STEM education. Our goal with this program is to offer a computer coding course free of charge to school districts & youth that wish to learn. In the course we go over basic principles in coding while also utilizing the engineering design process to create interactive art such as Games, Stories and Illustrations in a program called Scratch. Scratch is a free, open source program developed by MIT that introduce concepts of coding in a fun and interactive way. Our current school partnership are with Martin Luther King Jr Middle School and Henderson Middle School.
If you are a part of a school that would be interested in our program or you would like to volunteer to teach, please contact us and we will get back with you as soon as we can!
