The work Arise performs is unparalleled. The benefits to our society as a whole are most impressive, and will strengthen this country. Thank you for helping America, as well as the other countries around the world, where Arise has been able to have a positive impact.
The Arise training has benefited me more than any other training that I have taken. The tools that were given to me out shined any other.
The ARISE Trainings are great!! We look forward to the trainings as we have learned tools to use in all of our affairs.
The ARISE trainings are the best I've ever experienced. All of us participating in the training leave with such enthusiasm, as well as great tools to use daily. What is conveyed during training crosses over from our work environment into our personal lives in a very positive way. I highly recommend people to take these trainings. Although designed for staff working with at-risk populations, the Drop It at the Door training would be great for corporations to use to improve moral and increase productivity.
Arise does a great job serving at-risk youth all over the world. I have friends that really never learned life skills. they lose their cool and they get into trouble. if they had only used some of the ARISE materials that says "count to ten before react" life would be much simpler for them.
I have nothing but the best to speak of. Everything that comes in and out of this Foundation has been positive. We have touched so many lives and continue to do so. There are so many people in this world that need the ARISE Foundation!
I implimented ARISE in a residential facility. This is the first time that I have implimented a program component that NO complaints were recieved!. The staff loved it, the clients loved it and results were seen right away! Wonderful programming.
My personal experience with ARISE Foundation had led me to understand the incredible dedication and expertise the founders have provided to the Juvenile Justice System. Beginning in Florida over 25 years ago, this service of training-the-trainer to assist youthful offenders has spread throughout the United States and the world. Most impressive have been the outside assessments that the program has undergone which have provided outstanding results for the effectiveness of the program. Commendation is deserving to the founders for their practice of giving their teaching materials free to developing nations' organizations who wish to improve their juvenile justice systems.
Am Jude working with the youths in Uganda, ARISE Foundation has been so beneficial to us because they provided free life skills materials to us and we have used them to change so many lives of people in my country Uganda. We have been able ...to train youths about Anger Management and Dangers around kids such as fire, electricity cables. Arise Foundation is a great organisation which every person who needs change should support. I pray for God's blessings to continue with this organisation so that the whole world will be touched.
I hve been invovled with ARISE since its inception. ARISE spends 24/7 with a single minded purpose to have yugh pople make better life choices. ARISE lives by the Abraham LIncoln quote, " I am not concerned that you have fallen, I am concerned that you arise". ARISE helps youth who have makde mistakes but they always look at what they have done well and build from that point always understanding the factors that make up postive yuth devleopment. ARISE believes all youth can arise.
The ARISE Foundation has a wealth of information for children and teens. Provided in their curriculum are such titles as Teen Anger Danger, Gangs 50+ Stories of Fractured Lives and Life Skills for Young Folks. The books are easy to understand and packed with valuable lessons. Each structured lesson is interactive, engaging, to-the-point and anything but boring. ARISE trains juvenile justice officers, school administrators, probation officers or anyone with an interest in working with at-risk youth how to become certified Life Skills Instructors. The Life Skills instructors learn valuable lessons along the way and are highly motivated to reach and help those in their care.
ARISE helps at-risk youth by teaching them the life skills they should have learned from the adults and authority figures in their lives.
Please! Help ARISE, help others... Please!
As of 4/26/2011, ARISE has certified over 5,457 Group Facilitators who have gone on to teach more than 5,400,000 documented hours of interactive ARISE Life Skills lessons for at-risk youth and teens across the United States and beyond.
Its founders, Edmund and Susan Benson have dedicated their golden years to helping at-risk youth become good citizens by writing and publishing curricula that have been proven extremely effective in evidence-based studies. Recently, they have provided their materials free of charge to be used by former child soldiers in Uganda as well as in other third world countries.
